Decorated Lettering by Jan Pickett
Decorated Lettering by Jan Pickett is a book to be treasured for anyone who has a passion for lettering and writing. The book contains a comprehensive guide of calligraphic instruction, filled with examples and ideas for decorating your lettering. No matter if you want to learn formal calligraphy, or just find some inspiration then master calligrapher Jan Pickett will show you everything you need to know and understand in this very aspirational book. It features hand-drawn lettering instructions and examples that allow even non-calligraphers to recreate some stunning results whilst learning the fundamentals. Thanks to this extensive course which covers all aspects of decorated lettering, no matter what stage of artist whether just starting out or experienced you'll find something useful to learn from the magical world of ornamental lettering.
Practical and professional advice is given from Jan Pickett who is an honoured fellow of the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society along with being a fellow of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators. In many books on calligraphy, much time is spent on the different fonts. Here, this is done with eight examples but the information is restricted to a double page spread for each. Enough information is given to enable you to practice them but the body of the book is given over to how to decorate and embellish the basic lettering and give them colour, verve and excitement. Jan Pickett is one of the country's top calligraphers and the work included here is simply wonderful.
