A beautifully illustrated practical guide to creating beautiful modern lettering with brushes and brush pens.

Learn brush lettering with this creative guide from calligrapher extraordinaire Rebecca Cahill Roots, aka Betty Etiquette. In this quirky and relatable guide, she guides you through how to use brushes and brush pens to make exquisite letterforms.

One of the most popular hand-lettering techniques, brush lettering is a beautiful, free-spirited style that, once mastered, is easy to develop into a unique personal style.

The book is divided into chapters by type of media, covering ink, watercolour, gouache and brush pens. Each section contains a set of exercises for practising the technique including an alphabet and a set of numbers to copy.

To finish off, there’s a selection of pretty and practical projects to make using brush lettering, including beautifully decorated celebration cards, cushions and tableware.
