Modern Mark Making by Lisa Engelbrecht

If you're into calligraphy here is a great resource book "Modern Mark Making" by Lisa Engelbrecht. She also covers brush lettering, lettering on fabric and mixed media and letterforms. Lisa is a lettering and multi-media artist and calligraphy instructor and has taught for years at Cerritos College in California. Lisa teaches internationally, specializing in workshops and classes on lettering on fabric, experimental lettering, and the creative process.

Lisa has been on the faculty of six international lettering conferences nationwide. In 2006, Lisa introduced new multi-media classes at the International Quilt Show in Houston, Texas. She is interested not only in classical letterforms but also alternative surfaces for lettering and in current street influences on modern calligraphy.
Lisa's work is featured in Artist's Journals and Sketchbooks and Beyond Paper Dolls, by Lynne Perella, Quilted Memories, by Lesley Riley, Altered Couture, Letter Arts Review Annual, and Mary Englebreit's Home Companion. She is a frequent contributor to Somerset Studio magazine, and her work on fabric has been featured on the covers of Legacy and Quilting Arts magazines. Lisa is also a freelance lettering artist for American Greetings. Her classes are fast, fun, and totally stress free!
