I was sent a copy of Brittany Luiz's new book Lettering with Purpose, and OH MY GOSH...it is truly the penultimate hand-lettering book!
I have quite the collection of lettering books in my studio, and it's safe to say...without reservation, that this is by far the most useful (and beautiful).
Brittany is not only a lettering pro, but she's a really great teacher. She's obviously given a lot of thought to what would be most useful, so you can expect to find advice on everything from the best materials to use for hand-lettering, to how to choose colors, to how to pair fonts together and create stunning quote layouts.
She also shows you how to achieve a huge range of different lettering styles and techniques from blending with brush markers to chalk lettering, to this cute watercolor flower letter (which I obviously had to try immediately)!
If you'd like to learn how to make and edit time-lapse videos of your own art, check out my online class. It's easy, and you can do it using only your phone!
Want to learn about modern calligraphy script, bounce lettering, or need some sample alphabets to practice with, they're all in there, along with 100 prompts for when you're stuck on what to actually letter!
Her book officially comes out in just a couple of days and you can grab it over on Amazon now!
