ABOUT HANDSTYLE LETTERING
Between calligraphy and typography stands the age-old art of hand-lettering, which encompasses both forms while retaining its own character and individuality. Whilst we depend over-abundantly on the digital form and type printing, Handstyle Lettering represents the comeback and resurgence of the titular art, returning the human touch and warmth that has been lacking in our digital age.
The book acts as an inspiring introduction to the world of hand-lettering through its three sections, kicking off with a series of artist interviews then expanding into a showcase of artworks that is anything but unvaried. Distinct characters bleed through the pages in ink, chalk, graphite, black, monochrome, splashes of colours, between structured and abstract, from retro designs to extravagant classics to illustrative mixed styles to striking logos. Shunning uniformity, 42 international artists with the most sought-after works contributed to create a guide to the aged technique accompanying our contemporary culture, and top it off with an exclusive step-by-step guide on how to perfect the craft.
