In the past we’ve put together several special ebooks on various aspects of design excerpted from Pedro J. Lemos textbook Applied Arts, including one on Bookbinding and another on Color Harmony. Our new addition to that collection is A Guide to Lettering which looks at the history of letters and how to do basic calligraphy and design of letters for posters or type design.
Guide to Lettering is longer than our previous releases and it is profusely illustrated in both color and black and white. It’s not an advanced book on lettering and type design but it does provide a nice introduction in a way that’s clear and easy to understand.
You can download the ebook HERE in PDF format.
