Book Review #1
Type Cast: Creative Page Design Using Words,Type, and Letters
From the Editors of Memory Makers Books.
What I like about this book:
It focuses on title and journaling,to bring out the best scrapbook page. It explores the use of different mediums as titles like stickers, computer graphic, chipboard...etc... and how to merry type of fonts with the emotion and mood of the photograph. It also explores the concept of typography. It shares some very good design Do's and Don'ts... It is simple to read, filled with pictures on every page to get you thinking, and inspired. Definitely Worth the read!
Where you can find this book:
At Woodlands Regional Library (code 745.593 TYP-[REC])
This book gets a good 4/5 brads!!!!
Till then, Scrap to your heart's desires...
