Inside you'll find a series of inspirational exercises to help you start creating your own hand-drawn lettering styles. Follow the pointers, check out the expert examples and use the sketching pages to design your personal one-off typeface for a t-shirt or a tattoo, a poster or a postcard, or just for fun.

When hand-drawing type, you generally don't need to worry too much about having a good knowledge of typography, although it helps to know the rules before breaking them. This book will give you some insights into the characteristics and anatomy of type, while giving you the space to play by your own rules.
