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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
