Joanne’s book is at a glance full of eye catching beauty, but as one digs deeper and begins to read, you see how gifted a teacher she is as well as being an uber talented artist. She guides, encourages, and instructs in a way that allows you to experience your own personal growth as you go through the lessons. This is not a ‘copy Joanne’s lettering style’ type of book, but rather instruction and motivation to discover your own personal style of lettering and isn’t that what true artists want? To find their own artistic voice.
The book has loads of inspiration and instruction and I myself am greatly motivated to embrace my own handwriting (not pretty!) and see where these exercises can take me.
Joanne has hit the ball out of the park with this book and it’s a must have for any artists library.
And to celebrate this awesome new book, I’m going to GIVE AWAY a copy of it to one of the lucky people who leave a comment on this post!!!! I’ll draw a name on Wednesday, noon Central Time.
