Spark Creativity with CalligraphyLettering guru Phawnda Moore has been teaching calligraphy design for twenty years. Now, in this follow-up to her first book, she's stepped into her students' shoes to select content, address anticipated questions, and offer solutions to the unexpected yet inevitable problems creatives encounter in hand lettering.

Meditative pleasure at your fingertips. Phawnda's take on lettered art encourages readers to take a break, reconnect to the senses, and be creative. Crafted for beginners and intermediate calligraphers, this lettering book nourishes creative thinking and meditation through drawing techniques, traditional design principles, and modern tools, ultimately inspiring readers to find their own style as a creator.

Creative lettering that takes you from alphabet history to z quilts. Written in conversational narrative, this full-color book includes almost two hundred images of professional work. Inside, find a bonus chapter on inspiration and motivation, different calligraphy fonts from monoline to uncial, and step-by-step tutorials for projects from A to Z, like:

B for birthday cards
H for holiday cards
M for monograms
W for wedding invitations
Y for yard art

If you enjoyed learning about font style and handwriting with Hand Lettering 101, The Lost Art of Handwriting, or Hand Lettering for Relaxation, then it's time to grab a copy of Lettering from A to Z.
