Wedding Calligraphy A Guide to Beautiful Hand Lettering Laura Hooper and Alyssa Hooper

"I received a free sample in exchange for writing a review on my blog"

The book, Wedding Calligraphy by Laura and Alyssa Hooper is just so beautiful! The way the words are designed really can make a perfect card or additional accessory labeling placed in the celebration. Honestly, I really enjoy how lovely the letters flow from one to another, it just cries out elegance. I also love the beautiful way it's so smooth, and with practice can become simple to do.

The book is exactly how the front cover shows it to be inside. There is no false advertising here! Instead, you get to learn different types of script style writing inside, with simple to follow images and helpful tips of those written inside. Plus, there are projects you can enjoy creating along with these lettering designs. I find that I love using the hand lettering on envelopes, it's really something that catches one's eye first before they open to the card inside.  I know this is based on weddings, but it can be used to help with other celebrations such birthdays, holidays, and even big parties you may throw or even celebrations for a graduation party or others.

I finally like to say that this is quite a wonderful book, very easy to follow and such a beautiful way to express one's self! Lettering is something I enjoy and Calligraphy was one thing I wanted to learn with my new Calligraphy kit. So learning to make cards and more for a wedding is just wonderful! Now I can impress others with my beautiful writing technique and have it look so elegant at as well.
