I have a new book to show you. I am very honored to be one of the 16 participating artists for the latest lettering book, Creative Lettering, by Jenny Doh, published by Lark Crafts. With 16 different artists, this book is packed with various lettering styles, pictures, ideas, and step-by-step instructions. Some of my favorite artists in this book are: Aimee Dolich, Madeline and Diane Tompkins, and Rhianna Wurman. On top of the pieces created by each artist, the beginning of the book talks about the language of typography; there is also a list of materials and supplies to help the readers to create their own letterings.
Here are a few spreads of mine. When I am at work, I do a lot of digital lettering using Photoshop and Illustrator. But as most projects in this book, every piece I did here is strictly hand-lettered, no scanner, no computer, so it's easy for people to learn and follow by using simple tools like pencil, ink with dip pen, and markers.
Jenny has made a YouTube promo for the book; it will give you a better look of its contents.
Complete list of participating artists (according to the table of contents): Flora Chang, Jessica Swift, Pam Garrison, Francois Begnez, Karyn Denten, Aimee Dolich, Andy Ainger, Linda Schneider, Lori Vliegen, Madeline & Diane Tompkins, Stine Kassa, Lisa Engelbrecht, Philippe Debongnie, Barbara Close, Rhianna Wurman, and Martha Lever
