The first pages provide a brief information of why it is important to choose the right style and what it means to have large print (loud) or small (soft). For example, when we write in large lettering we want to be loud or use a clear voice. Each section provides a brief description about the purpose that the style serves. Some styles that are included are: graffiti, handwriting, lettering on fabric, printing, atmospheric and projects that include material list. It also provides good advice on making posters emphasizing the importance of having the right size and style lettering so that it’s attractive and eye catching and easy to read from a distance. The steps mentioned in designing a poster are: First, write down a simple message. Then separate the message into parts and order by priority. Finally, choose the style. You’re encouraged to use strong shapes and colors and to avoid combining lettering styles which can be confusing. In addition, best practices suggest using a grid that aids in placement and proper symmetry. Personal critique: I found the pages to be too busy with too many lettering graphics. Also, I thought the layout of each page was disorganized. I would have liked to see numbers to show the procedural steps on how to draw a specific lettering. However, it was nice to see the examples that were provided to give an idea of what each style supposed to look like. Target audience: 7 - 14 years old.

    Clearly outdated, but a fun guide for young artists and sign makers.

    I love this book and so do the children and teens at the library. Small, easy, practical. The graffiti pages are outdated, but instructive.
