In Progress: See Inside a Lettering Artist's Sketchbook


By Jessica Hische

This show-all romp through the graphic designer and letterer Jessica Hische's sketchbook reveals the creative and technical process behind making award-winning hand lettering and is written with Hische's usual dose of humor and honesty.

See everything, from Hische's rough sketches to her polished finals for major clients such as Wes Anderson, NPR, and Starbucks. The result is a well of inspiration and brass tacks information for designers who want to sketch distinctive letterforms and hone their skills.

With more than 250 images and metallic silver ink printed throughout to represent her penciled sketches, this highly visual book is an essential—and entirely enjoyable—resource for those who practice or appreciate the art of hand lettering.
