Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It good for examples I bought this book a couple of months ago and thought it looked like a good inspiration for doing lettering. I realized now that that is all it is. There is no actually examples of a full alphabet to help a person along with their lettering skills. It is definitely geared at people who are already skilled at lettering.
