Even the simplest letters and doodles came to life! Now, with her trusty LAMY Safari in hand, Usamura shares the joy of fountain pens. You’ll learn to:
choose the perfect pen (and take good care of it)
simply sketch adorable foods, clothing, plants, and household objects
write stylishly in block and cursive letters—and create narrow, bold, 3-D, serif, and calligraphy effects
embellish journals, labels, scrapbooks, and cards with decorative frames and borders
design layouts that bring all these elements together, and put your personal touch on seven easy crafts!
