<p>"No other book has made me want to re-read Ovid <em>and</em> retile my bathroom floor, nor given me the conviction that I can do both. I loved it." —Rosie Schaap, author of <em>Drinking with Men</em></p><br /><p>A warm and inspiring book for anyone who has ever dreamed of changing tracks, <em>Hammer Head</em> is the story of a young woman who quit her desk job to become a carpenter. Writing with infectious curiosity, Nina MacLaughlin—a Classics major who couldn’t tell a Phillips from a flathead screwdriver—describes the joys and frustrations of making things by hand. Filled with the wisdom of writers from Ovid to Mary Oliver and MacLaughlin’s own memorable accounts of working with wood, unfamiliar tools, and her unforgettable mentor, <em>Hammer Head</em> is a passionate book full of sweat, bashed thumbs, and a deep sense of finding real meaning in work and life.</p>

Would you like to learn calligraphy or hand lettering the easy way? Calligraphy is a hobby that can bring you so much joy, but it can also be very frustrating to learn in the beginning. <br /><br />I know from experience. In the summer of 2016, I decided to learn hand lettering to create coloring pages for my book, Broken Crayons Still Color. I watched every video I could find and tried all the recommended techniques. However, no matter what I did, even with the best of pens, my lettering looked horrible. <br /><br /><div>Let's admit it: Learning calligraphy is not as easy as some of the artists online make it look. <br /><br />And I was frustrated. <br /><br />I continued my research and discovered faux calligraphy. I decided to use it, along with block lettering, to create my hand-drawn coloring pages. <br /><br /><b>What is Faux Calligraphy?</b> </div><br /><div></div><div>Faux calligraphy is fake calligraphy. In my opinion, it is the easiest way to get started. You can achieve a beautiful outcome almost right away, even with your own handwriting. <br /><br />In this book, <b><i>Calligraphy for Beginners</i></b>, I will walk you through the steps of how to get started as well as the mistakes to avoid. <br /><br />In calligraphy, your letters will have thick downstrokes and thin upstrokes. With faux calligraphy, you simply add the thickness to your downstrokes after you write the letters. It's a three-step process you'll learn in chapter three. <br /><br />Traditional calligraphy and brush lettering require months of consistent practice to train your hand and develop the muscle memory required to achieve the thick and thin strokes. <br /><br />Even after years of practice, I continue to improve every day. And, honestly, I notice the difference in my lettering if I don't practice consistently for several weeks. <br /><br />Therefore, if you want to achieve a beautiful outcome right away or need to use lettering for a project immediately (like I did), faux calligraphy is a great way to get started. <br /><br />It's a fun way to add text to coloring pages and create beautiful artwork, hand-lettered cards, bookmarks, and so much more. <br /><br /><b>Bonus</b>: As a bonus to this book, you get free access to my faux calligraphy online class ($39 value). To make it as easy as possible for you, I filmed a video demonstrating every letter in the alphabet. Plus, you can download my practice sheets to print off for reference and blank practice sheets for your own lettering. <br /><br /><i>Click the buy button and let's get started! </i></div>

She also shares her special brand of corrective surgery for when things go wrong, and offers fun and informative sidebars on such topics as how to find the best yarn for less, how to make a buttonhole, knitting etiquette, and what tools to keep in your knitting bag. At the heart of the book are forty stylish patterns: Alien Scarf, Big Bad Baby Blanky, Mohair Hoodie, Kitty and Devil Hat, Cell Phone Cozy, and Wonder Woman Bikini.
