"Great ideas that you can incorporate your own artistic style into. That is what is terrific about this book. She is
paving the way for you to explore, and create your own art! If you ever wanted to own a book about lettering for your
artwork--this is it. Look no further." --Twisted Sister

"There is no lack of visual eye candy in this book. In fact there's not one page in it that doesn't have Joanne's
beautiful artwork on it but there's more to this book than just visual inspiration. There's an incredible amount of
instruction and encouragement in its pages for the reader to draw upon while learning how to develop their own whimsical
lettering style." --SueBleiweiss.com

"Joanne's book is at a glance full of eye catching beauty, but as one digs deeper and begins to read, you see how gifted
a teacher she is as well as being an uber talented artist. She guides, encourages, and instructs in a way that allows
you to experience your own personal growth as you go through the lessons." --PamCarriker.com

"At first glance you may think the book isn't related to quiltmaking, but wait! It is! I could hardly contain my
excitement when I realized that whimsical lettering is perfect for quilt labels." --Quilt Maker/Quilty Pleasures

"The book is divided into sections and the whole thing is just so inspiring and gorgeous to look at. Some sections talk
about styling your font, others give ideas for watercoloring or monochromatic designs, and then there's a whole section
of alphabet ideas!" --Peneloping.com

"This author gives her personal perspective on lettering, offering her favorite tools, how to use them, helpful
techniques with step-by-step instructions and illustrations. There are lots of great ideas for lettering and/or
calligraphy. It's a nice 'go to' when working on a project." --Crafter's Corner

"You don't have to be an artist to play and learn from this super-fun book. Joanne has created amazing fonts and
compositions to inspire your inner-artist. She makes artistic alphabets with ink, marker, and watercolor that will
inspire you to dig right in and start creating. She also teaches basic collage and bookmaking techniques. Her imagery is
very friendly even for a beginner. Listen, everyone can doodle!!!!" --SUCH-Designs

"There are so many suggestions in the book that I found it hard to pinpoint particular areas that were the most useful.
What I did enjoy seeing was the way the reader is encouraged to have their own simple handwriting notebook for practice
and development. There is so much in the book that offers advice like this that there is no doubt that you will finish
reading the book bursting with ideas on how to tackle lettering and writing artistically." --Workshop on the Web

"This book is a fun and easy way to pump up your lettering. Joanne has a way of adding flair to your writing in a
creative way. This book is a must have!" --No Excuses Art with Gina Rossi Armfield
