This is Endy!! My mom grabbed this one for me because I love drawing and I wanted to try my hand at creating my own fonts. This book was great and easy to use. Even though I am only 13 I found it easy to follow and I can't wait to get it in print so I can really dive back into it and show you all what I have done.  I didn't put this down for two days and it showed me everything from learning letter forms and tracing to learning skills.  If you think you want to learn how to create your own fonts then check this out to see if its something you really want to do. Its a great step by step guide.
