How to hand-draw the alphabet with a style matching every occasion
Words have the power to move people—Je t’aime, Ti amo, I love you. Your hand-lettering contains a bit of you: the message is underlined by a unique and personal art form, matching every occasion. Plump, elegant, lively or modern letters… the art of lettering, which expresses creativity through words.
On these pages, lettering artist and author Abbey Sy has invited four international artists—Meagan Hyland, João Neves, the Googly Gooeys, and Lisa Lorek— to join her in designing new alphabet styles, showing you how to draw them, and using them in many different languages.
You don’t have to be a trained artist to master the art of hand lettering. There are alphabets here for every skill set and any style that suits your taste — colourful or black and white, classic or just plain fun. It’s all about getting creative with the twenty-six letters of the alphabet and a little bit of you.
Abbey Sy is an artist and author based in Manila, Philippines. Since her younger years, she has found fascination in letters, type, and anything about the alphabet. She has written books on lettering and journaling, aptly called The ABCs of Hand Lettering and The ABCs of Journaling, respectively, and spends most of her time illustrating letterforms, traveling, and exploring the world, and documenting her days in the pages of her journal. Her work has been featured on Buzzfeed, Rookie, DesignTAXI, and in IdN magazine, and her art has been widely recognized around the world.
