Brush Pen Lettering Practicing Book Review

Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Caligraphy Drills, Measured Guidlines and Practice Shees to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words Review + Giveaway

As much as I love blogging there is another thing I love to do – write and send cards to loved ones, especially during the holidays when I am sending cards to loved ones.

I believe that the art of handwriting is slowly being eliminated from the skills people hold. Instead of being able to do clean brush lettering, people strive to have the most words typed from their smart phones.

Each year I write cards and notes, and each year I strive to make my handwriting better. I am always looking for books and step-by-step instructions to extend those skills. When I recently I received a copy of Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Calligraphy Drills, Measured Guidelines, and Practice Sheets to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words by Grace Song for review I was excited to perfect my abilities for future cards with worksheets.

Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Calligraphy Drills, Measured Guidelines, and Practice Sheets to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words by Grace Song features instructions about different ways to create scripts and writing styles as well as examples that can be copied and practiced.

Throughout the book is visual confirmation while working on the new lettering technique. The one type of handwriting I have been yet to do is calligraphy and this books takes the basic steps and teaches you brush lettering.

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect and this book is no different, the more practice using these techniques the better you become. I have a habit of pressing down on whatever pen I chose and there is a section on using pressure to make the letters bolder, fine and medium.

The Brush Pen Lettering Practice Book: Modern Calligraphy Drills, Measured Guidelines, and Practice Sheets to Perfect Your Basic Strokes, Letterforms and Words by Grace Song is a comprehensive and complete practice guide. I would recommend this book for any person who is looking to add the art of brush lettering to their repertoire of skills.

    “Can you do any special lettering in your handwriting?” I do some unconventional things with my cursive handwriting, but I wouldn’t say I’ve done calligraphy as of yet!

    No, I have no special qualities when I write. I was hoping this would improve my handwriting.
