Each chapter contains step-by-step projects with lots of practical applications, including designs for love letters, monogrammed jewelry, business cards, fabric patterns, all sorts of signs, gift wrap, rubber stamps, and temporary tattoos. Detailed, close-up photographs of various pen types, nibs from all angles, a great variety of inks, paints, and other supplies are featured throughout. A handy section at the end of the guide demonstrates how to digitize hand lettering in Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
