NOW IN PAPERBACK!-MODERN CALLIGRAPHY AND HAND LETTERING-ALSO A GIVEAWAY!


IT'S HERE! My book, Modern Mark Making has been given a spanking new cover-and a new name! It's the same goodness inside-and sorry to say no more spiral binding-BUT its cheaper than the OG!

and to celebrate OVER 100 FOLLOWERS ON MY BLOG I'm doing a special giveaway-just for you -my special peeps! Please respond in the comments section by September 15th. I will also include a special limited edition print and personalize the book to you! ( or this could be a great gift for a friend!) I will randomly draw a name and notify the winner here in this blog. THANK YOU for all the support you've given me!

BTW cast is off -writing returns and Im overjoyed-what a blessing it is to be able to use my hand again-what a wake up call! I surely didnt want to learn to do lettering with my left hand!
Thanks again everybody!

Hi Lisa, I love your book - some of my friends have it. I'm putting it on my Christmas list but it would be nice to be able to win it - then maybe I could put other calligraphy toys on my list. Congratulations!

I would love to have a copy of your book. It is on my wish list. I am just learning calligraphy.
I am so glad that your cast is off. My mother has had a cast on for about a month now.

Hope I win--I've not done much with lettering, but I have a quilt in mind that needs to incorporate words in my hand, so this would be a great help.

JLH said...

Lisa, your book is SUPERB! If I happen to win the paperback, it will be shared as a gift to some very fortunate friend!!

Bonnie said...

Just discovered your blog through a link from A Cottage in the Woods, which a friend just sent. Your work reminds me of Timothy Botts. I'm sure you have learned from him or met him? Would love your book. It is gorgeous!

I am sure you are glad to have that itchy cast off..... keep wiggling those fingers but remember the words of Howard Glasser: "There's more to it than just wiggling your fingers and out come the letters." Though I already have your wonderful book,I'd love a copy for our Mysticalligraphers Library so my fingers are crossed. Ann

How exciting! I'd love to be chosen. If not, i'll have to settle with an un-personalized copy.

The cover looks scrumptious, Lisa! I'm just delighted that you've re-published it. How I'd love to win a copy - signed, too. :-) What a generous offer. Glad your cast is off - did you have the itchies underneath it ... hope not. Now to see if I can remember my Google password and send off this comment.

Hey Lisa, any idea how my comment showed my website addie instead of my name? I typed in my name but the website came up. Can't figure out what I did to create make that happen. Glitch at my end I figure. June

Glad to see you back teaching. Congrats on the e-pub of your book. I have and love the hardback, but would share the paperback with a friend.

Dawn said...

Did someone say a give away ?! Your book is amazing. Almost as soon as I got my copy, my son grabbed it and set out to try his hand at some hand lettering. He also spilt India Ink over it! Although he felt terribly guilty, it was almost fitting in a way (it didn't obscure any of the book) that a splash of ink had been added.

I would be very excited to win, so I could share a copy with my son, or one of my other friends because it is a beautiful book.

Congratulatioms Lisa on a new look to an awesome book!
Cheers ~
Dawn.
