Lettering Journey :: Fast. Functional. Fun!


Take an adventure to power up our lettering!

Designed with the visual practitioner in mind, Lettering Journey is a how-to, exemplar book inspired by a cross country road trip and the letters found along the way. This practical guide gives you the freedom to be fast. It includes eight lettering styles that are designed to be learned quickly and used to letter with Neuland markers on paper in real-time, in front of your client.

Each chapter of Lettering Journey

• starts with a short story of how the lettering style was inspired,
• identifies markers to use,
• outlines the best use of the style (when and where), and
• lists the attributes of each style.

Some styles include a ductus—showing the direction and order of each stroke, written at 100% and in grey so that you can see how the strokes join and cross. Each chapter includes examples by visual practitioners in the field and how they use these styles in their work. The book also includes foundational tips and best practices when lettering.
