Creative Lettering Today
Creative Lettering Today brings together between its covers a quartet of lettering arts: drawing, calligraphy, carving, and digital lettering. Michael Harvey, an English lettering designer and teacher who has taught often in the Untied States, was already a calligrapher, carver, and type designer, used to drawing every character of a font, when he was commissioned by Adobe Systems to design a typeface. So Harvey moved from the world of hand craftsmanship to that of high technology, and in Creative Lettering Today he demonstrates the full range of techniques - manual and digital - open to those who wish to explore lettering design. Harvey addresses all those who for whatever reason wish to pick up pencil, pen, brush, chisel, or mouse, providing the ideal introduction to the lettering arts.
