Lettering, be it hand lettering, brush lettering, or digital, is enjoying a bit of a renaissance. This is good news for people who love working with their hands and find letterforms fascinating. If you’re trying to learn hand lettering, it can be easy to get lost while researching materials, techniques, and the minutiae of getting started.
We recommend building some regular time into your schedule for gathering inspiration from other hand lettering artists. Here’s a list (in no particular order) that’s by no means exhaustive but will help start your library of inspiration. Who are some of your favorites that you’d like us to add to the list?
