Decorative artists want to have fun painting. They don't want to spend hour after hour leaming obscure or difficult lettering. Stroke by stroke, this book shows decorative painters and crafters how to add words and sayings to their projects without the use of stencils. Using only four simple strokes, the Grays guide readers through painting the entire alphabet, both upper and lower case, then teach them to connect letters into words. There is also a great list of sayings, expressions, quotes and rhymes suitable for many applications and a small gallery of inspiring projects, signs and plaques displaying the exciting possibilities that the mastery of brush lettering offers the decorative painter and crafter. To help give lettering a truly professional look this guide includes techniques for embellishing the letters, laying out letter designs evenly and performing great short cuts for drawing straight lines, borders and perfect circles.

Bobbie Gray, CDA has been decorative painting for many years and is a featured instructor at many national conventions. Jim Gray, CDA is a professional sign and sketch artist with more than 40 years of experience.From Library Journal:
The Grays have combined their years of experience (25 years in decorative arts for Bobbie, and 40 years as a sign and sketch artist for Jim) into a comprehensive book on hand lettering. Gearing their book exclusively to crafters, the authors emphasize small boxes, signboards, tables, and chairs and provide 300 "charming quotes and one-liners" as well as a resource list of suppliers. This is a good purchase for arts and crafts collections, though it is not essential if Jackie O'Keefe's Handlettering for Decorative Artists (LJ 12/98) is already on the shelves.
