Modern Brush Lettering | Becki Clark | Review

Review copy c/o Netgalley
Modern Brush Lettering is a newly released guide on the art of brush lettering from Becki Clark, the designer behind the beautiful wedding stationery brand Olive and Bramble.

Starting with the basics, the book covers everything you need to know from tools and equipment, to handy tips and suggestions for words and phrases to use to practice these techniques. Not only does the book help readers to learn the basic skills for brush lettering, but also includes 20 creative projects to test out your new skills. From items that would be great for the home or as gifts, to items for special occasions, there is something for everyone here.

The projects are split into four sections each including five ideas taking inspiration from one of the seasons, which the author explains influence her own work. The tutorials include step-by-step instructions and images alongside tips and tricks, as well as gorgeous colourful photographs showcasing the finished designs.

The adorable handprinted ‘Ceramic Easter Bunnies’ found in the spring section and autumn-inspired ‘Enamel Cups’, both of which combine lettering with floral/botanical designs, were particular favourites for me. I also loved the fact that the author encourages readers to source items such as mirrors and frames from charity shops to upcycle for the projects, rather than purchasing new items to work with.

Modern Brush Lettering is a great introduction to the art of brush lettering and would be perfect for beginners as well as those looking for some fun new lettering project ideas.
