The ABC of Custom Lettering d’Ivan Castro

Una dels propers llibres que m’agradaria comprar és el The ABC of Custom Lettering d’Ivan Castro. Segons llegeixo és un llibre pràctic que comença amb les bases de la cal·ligrafia fins l’explicació de com dibuixar diferents estils de lletra pas a pas. En el llibre també es troben projectes i exercicis perquè  posem en pràctica les nostres idees.

Amb aquest llibre veurem de manera simple i pas a pas com crear lletres dibuixades a mà per a usar en peces de disseny, d’il·lustració, flyers, samarretes, rètols o altres usos comercials i/o personals.

Need to produce a flyer? Want to draw up a logo for a band? Does your local speed shop need a T-shirt design? Don’t want to use the same old computer fonts? Well, let graphic designer and typography teacher Ivan Castro show you The ABC of Custom Lettering. This practical workbook features easy-to-follow, step-by-step guidance on hand drawing a range of letterforms, from Modern Roman and Gothic to Latin, Script, and Interlocked. It uses traditional instruction methods with a modern twist, and includes gallery sections for inspiration and exercises and projects that enable you to practise your technique.
