Written by Hand book

Book Synopsis: The art of beautiful handwriting is being rediscovered by a generation that spends most of the day typing on keyboards and screens. With Written by Hand, anyone can hone, perfect, and beautify their handwriting. Guided practice sheets encourage readers to look deeply at the written word and add flourishes and embellishments to their lines that elevate them from typical or rushed to elegant and purposeful. Learn to love your handwriting again.

In a world where typing on keyboards and screens is the norm, focusing on the art of handwriting will allow us to grow a deeper appreciation for the written word and fall in love again with writing with our own two hands. The author walks readers through the habits and skills needed to turn everyday scrawls into miniature pieces of art that are wonderful to look at and fun to take part in. With walk-throughs of various lettering styles, examinations of personal writing habits, interesting facts on handwriting and calligraphy, and plenty of practice pages for readers to use in their own hand-lettering practice, this book is an immersive guide to all things written.

My Thoughts: Written By Hand is really cool book to help you improve your handwriting and to learn some new styles. The cover is really sturdy and the book is almost set-up like a composition book. There are tons and tons of instructions, practice pages and more. One of my personal favorite sections in the book is the “Faux Calligraphy” section which will be perfect for addressing wedding invitations, party invites and so forth. I think this book is perfect for adults who need help improving their handwriting and I can see older children & teenagers using the book too.
