Oct 10, 2016Filled with inspiration
Feb 26, 2016This is a fun, fast, and inspiring read filled with lots of examples. Sharpe convinced me that I had it within myself to create fun lettering for my poetry.
Aug 15, 2014At first glance, I thought it was a bit too busy, but then I ended up reading it from cover to cover, twice, and mining all the wonderful ideas. It has a workbook as well as ideas; in the end it was nice to see Sharpe's version of her exercises but I felt inspired to make my own, not copy hers, which I would say is mission accomplished.
Sep 05, 2014The ideas and tips in this book are not new but it's still a great start for people who love hand lettering , art journal or scrapbooking .
Jun 03, 2017I really loved this book it gave me plenty of ideas for different lettering in my art journals and mixed media projects it is a great reference tool also when you are looking for inspiration for a project.This review was originally posted on Books In Brogan
Jul 05, 2015This is a fantastic resource for anyone wanting to jazz up their creative projects - cards, signs, scrapbooking, if you want to put words on it, this book will help you do it.
Sep 20, 2014This is a fantastic book on how to use your lettering skills in new and different ways. This is NOT a how to on lettering, you will need to look elsewhere for that, rather this is about expanding the skills you have already acquired. I took copious notes and tried some ideas out and reluctantly returned this book to the library. It now goes on my "someday I'd like to own it" list.
Jan 17, 2015I bought this because it was recommended by so many people who are doing the same online art project as I am.... The artist has filled this book with all types of beautiful lettering styles. My only wish is that there were a few full-sized alphabets that could be traced...easier to practice if you have it right the first time. It's a colorful book too!
Jan 09, 2015This book is chock full of color, creative ideas, and beautiful designs. It is the kind of book one would like to own so that its ideas could be sampled and pondered. I am planning to try some of these ideas in combination with Zentangles.
May 02, 2014Handy guide to lettering for art journals and so on. Works really well as a tablet Kindle edition (for Fire etc - you really need the colours, it wouldn't work as e-ink). Lots of good tips.
Dec 17, 2014Excellent tutorials & instruction on creating your own "signature" handwriting style. Great lists of the tools needed to get started.
Oct 29, 2014Some inspiring pieces in this book, but basically all you need to know is play, practice, write and repeat.
Aug 01, 2014Excellent book! the illustrations are so bright and beautiful. I cant wait to start using the dieas for my own art.
Dec 20, 2018I think I can find some inspiration in this book. There were lots of examples of the author's writing with slight variations, as well as suggestions for materials to consider buying as you get started "lettering". I wish it provided more styles of lettering and also left room for practicing the various styles. The author's approach seems to apply slight variations to her natural writing style instead of learning and showing us ways to step outside the box of our own natural style.

I did like her examples of lettering various quotes - because I love quotes. I was also very drawn to the cover of the book. I love all that color! Although, I must say that I was a little disappointed, it is a very colorful, playful, fun book and I expect I will reference it as I get started actually "lettering" as opposed to just "pinning" millions of lettering examples on Pinterest. ;) ...more
Feb 20, 2019Just so so
Jan 17, 2019What an inspiring book, and an inspirational artist! I love Joanne's art and took a few classes from her a few years ago. Might do so again. If you like this style of art it is worth your time to read this book and enjoy the feast of color and useful ideas.
Jul 23, 2017This book is still a constant reference when I want to be creative, but feel stuck. I love the clear and colourful illustrations and explanations.
Dec 21, 2017If you ever need inspiration for lettering this book has many ideas.
Oct 30, 2016Expected different
May 12, 2018Clear and concise instructions. A great book to help you learn lettering. Lots of practical advise and exercises to get you going.
Dec 05, 2018Not the comprehensive lettering book I imagined. It's probably more sensible than that in that it suggests ways to enhance current writing/lettering. Just not what I wanted right now.
Sep 05, 2018Lots of good ideas for practicing and experimenting with different styles!
