Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Quality lettering can make the difference between a professional-looking craft item and one clearly done by an amateur. Whether letter forms are copied from printer's type, computer fonts, or script writing, the same rules of proportion and placement apply to all. This book has extensive examples of typefaces and decorative lettering with practice exercises and projects for lettering household items. A gallery of professionally lettered craft projects is included. This should be a basic book for all crafters and belongs in all crafts collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
