Nikki at the excellent culture+typography blog alerted me to this article about a fascinating book showcasing the work of hand lettering artist Letman. The article features examples of his work which spans both calligraphy and painted lettering, with more available on his own site. The book can be bought on Amazon.
(PS. You can find other books and gifts on ghostsigns, lettering and related topics in the ghostsigns book shop on this site. Suggestions for new listings always welcomed, as are review copies for profile on this site. Just get in touch.)
