Synopsis

Let's Write! Design Your Own Fonts by Julia Kaergel

Whether you love the feel of pen on paper or are attached to your keyboard, this unique book will open you up to the fascinating world of letters. No skill is required, just an imagination and a willingness to scribble, draw, colour and play. In quirky, uniquely designed spreads, Julia Kaergel demonstrates how entire alphabets can be created with the simplest of tools: pencils, pen and ink, paintbrush, markers, quill, sticks and even junk. Her encouraging step-by-step instructions are accompanied by examples of her own creative expressions that are sure to inspire all doodlers. In addition, she offers great ideas for ways you can incorporate your typeface creations into invitations, posters, t-shirts and even cake decoration! Whether you're a budding graphic artist or obsessed with fonts, this book serves up endless ideas to let your imagination run wild.
