Ubiquitous at boutiques and cafés, on Etsy and Pinterest, in stationery and home decor, the art of chalk lettering is hotter than ever. Valerie McKeehan, an Etsy standout whose work has been featured in magazines and websites from Good Housekeeping to RealSimple.com, teaches us everything we need to know to create gorgeous hand-drawn chalk designs. The book is also a practice space, with three foldout “chalkboards”—the inside cover and foldout back cover are lined with blackboard paper.

In over 60 lessons, learn the ABCs of lettering (literally) and basic styles: serif, sans serif, and script. Next, how to lay out a design, combine various styles into one cohesive piece, add shadows and dimension. Master more advanced letter styles, from faceted to ribbon to “vintage circus.” Use banners, borders, flourishes. And finally, 12 projects to show off your newfound skills: including a Winter Wonderland Snow Globe; a smartphone-themed birthday card to text friends and family; a one-of-a-kind party invitation to create, photograph, and mail; and a bake sale sign guaranteed to put everyone who sees it in the mood for a cupcake!

Say It with Chalk
 
In more than 60 lessons learn the art of hand-drawn chalk lettering from an Etsy superstar. Then show off your newfound skills and create your own unique look.

  • Master your ABCs, from basic letterforms—serif, sans serif, and script—to fun lettering styles like Bubble, Spooky, and Vintage Circus.
  • Discover how to play with chalk dust to add shadows and dimensions; how to illustrate borders, banners, frames; and how to embellish with flourishes, laurels, hearts, and arrows.
  • From basic tools and tips (how to sharpen a stick of chalk, how to prep a blackboard) to a dozen inspiring projects, it’s a complete guide to the playful art of chalk lettering.

About the Author:

Valerie McKeehan opened her chalkboard boutique, Lily & Val, on Etsy in 2012. She lovingly creates each piece entirely by hand, from sketch to slate, out of her home studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her website is lilyandval.com.
