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)!
