Good basics

This primer is a nice introduction to some of the more basic calligraphy and lettering techniques. Hufton's emphasis is on good form, good practice techniques and understanding the underlying basics of letterforms, rather than just focusing on copying the strokes right. At the same time, the numerous illustrations and diagrams make it easy to move through. The illustrations of incorrect letters are especially helpful. The wide format of the book is nice as it stays open fairly easily (it would have been even better if it had been spiral bound.)Her alphabets tend to be on the looser, more casual side, almost humorous. Many of them reminded me of lettering for signage. But taking cues from her helped me to make my own style a little less uptight.The section on projects is good for showing the creative process, especially for showing that you don't have to get it perfect the first time.
