Truth is I'd rather just buy books about lettering arts. I have several favorites. Here are the ones I'm leafing through regularly.
Molly Thorpe's work.
I suggest you take a look at The Postman's Knock by Lindsey Bugbee, who's blog I follow religiously, & sign up to follow her if you are interested in doing lettering. This post by Lindsey goes into lots of detail on
Molly's book & work. A great video is included with a fun project.
Annie Cicale in the past & she will be joining the instructors at Paper & Book Intensive this next spring. I may take her class there depending on the content & competition with other classes. Just about every hand is represented with great instruction. Notice the large amount of sticky notes hanging off the edges. That's a sure sign of something I look back to often. My copy is signed. Smile!
Next up will be a few thoughts on practice, supplies, and fun additions to the lettering supply stash.
