Creative Lettering for Kids
We use letters all the time, but how often do we take advantage of making them lively and full of character? More of a book of art and craft projects based around letters than a calligraphy "how-to" guide, this book contains loads of projects and ideas to make letters fun, fancy, messy, and zesty! Broaden your mind with projects that involve potato stamps, watercolor, gel pens, cardboard, pom-poms, and much more! Divided into sections from thirteen lettering artists, this book contains 55 projects with a range of materials, mediums, and uses. Each project has step-by-step instructions with room for the individual letterer's own touches. Make an initialed polka-dot placard. Scrawl out a message where all your letters come to life with colorful faces. Make a valentine with a cat wrapped in string, or a candy store sign with bold letters. After you go through this book, you'll never look at letters the same way again. Instead, you'll be thinking up your own projects to make one-of-a-kind words, phrases, invitations, signs, gift tags, and more! - Janine
