Logo, Font, & Lettering Bible
« on: January 02, 2014, 11:33:21 AM »
I saw this amazing book on one of the Illustrator tutorials I posted on Pinterest so I ordered a used copy. It arrived yesterday and it is awesome. It truly is a comprehensive guide to the Design, Construction, and Usage of Alphabets and Symbols. While it does have some great eye candy - this book is really a fabulous guide to understanding good letter forms. It offers some great tips on Bezier curves and what makes a good or bad logo design. If you are serious about hand lettering, this is a must have.

So, this morning, I received an email from ISSUU about the latest free books available in the categories I like. Guess what ... yup... this book is available for free viewing! I don't regret purchasing the book because I like to have a reference like that in hand. But for anyone who is interested, I highly recommend you check it out:
