Recently I’ve found a new obsession…as if I didn’t have enough already! It’s the beautiful art of hand lettering. There are so many talented artists out there who make beautiful word art. As a person who’s always loved pens, pencils and writing in general, I am intrigued. When I saw the book Simply Calligraphy by Judy Detrick, I knew I had to have it!
The first thing I must say about this book is that it really is simple, but in the best way possible. The cover features only the title on a solid turquoise-colored background, decorated with gold dots. The simple theme is continued inside with neat, concise chapters and not a lot of frills. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. She gives advice about what kind of pen to buy to start out, which I found very helpful. There is also info about how to use your new-found skills. This book is a great jumping-off point for beginners. I can’t wait to buy my pen and get started!
Happy reading (and writing!)
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
