The art of Lettering

posted in Graphic   Wednesday, 11 February 2015 from Arcadie . Méjannes-lès-Alès (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening Lenny Kravitz Circus !

I often present handlettering projects here, such as Andy Luce work (who participate to the Letterpress calendar) or Kevin Cantrell. Jessica Hische is the best exemple of mastering this art of drawing letters, and she did this poster that explain what is the difference bewteen type, typography, font, lettering and calligraphy !

As she explains, Lettering is "Drawn rather than written, it's essentially an illustration of words or letters". Here come some Lettering artists and projects.
