My Take on the Book
This was a great book that made me think differently about the lettering that I use in the drawings that I make. The book walks you through steps to create and make beautiful lettering. In the end you do have to work hard, but in time your lettering gets better and better. I should know as it happened to me and it will do that same for you too.
