Creative Lettering Workshop by Lesley Riley is an interesting look at designing mixed media art with quotes. Not lettering. Quotes. The title is very misleading.
2 out of 10 stars. This is really a mixed media art book, not a lettering workshop. Bad title. Disappointing book.
There were no numbered “projects”, just lots of pages of bizarre mixed media art that people contributed. Most of it was downright ugly. There were two that were kind of cute. I also like the photo she had of one of her stencils (the only photo of a stencil in the entire book). I like using my old makeup as a medium with stencils to letter my art, so I’m always looking out for alphabet stencils.
2 out of 10 stars. I was expecting a book on lettering and got a book on mixed media with some pretty ugly art. 🙁
