{{Book Review}} DIY Type by Dana Tanamach

*About the Book*
Dana Tanamachi, the Brooklyn-based typographer whose exquisite hand-lettered murals fueled a chalk-writing trend, offers a book of alphabet stencils for all-purpose craft projects.

Inspired by the contemporary aesthetic of rendering type by hand, celebrated designer Dana Tanamachi shares a full set of upper and lower case alphabet stencils to create wall compositions, monogram t-shirts and jackets, personalize journals and school supplies, embroider pillows, and host parties filled with customized cakes and banners. With beautiful photographs and simple tutorials, you’ll find endless ways to decorate with type and joy in discovering the happy imperfections unique to your own application.

*My Review*
I love being crafty & 
I’ve been a big fan of typography, so being able to review a copy of DIY Type: 50+ Typographic Stencils for Decorating, Crafting and Gifting by Dana Tanamachi with every intention of trying out some of the projects was something I just HAD to do! 

This book provides a starting point for some fun projects. Grab a sketch pad, some sharpies and just act like a kid again. It’s fun!
