This book is so easy to follow! It has a ton of information but isn't overwhelming at all. I'm so glad I bought this!! I've followed Emma on Instagram for a few months and I was floored when she announced she was releasing a book. I scooped it up right away and I love it. There are practice sheets inside and additional resources on her website if you purchase the book. Incredibly helpful from start to finish. If you want to learn brush lettering, this is the book!!
