So going back to the basics, it’s important that we know the foundation of lettering! When I began lettering, I didn’t know about the anatomy of a letter and what a serif, baseline, x-height, etc. was! Again, no worries. I found a guide, created by the author Made by Marzipan, that gives simple illustrations and explanations on these terms!
Click on the link, provided above, and Marzi also has a video tutorial that goes more into depth on the anatomy of a letter! Such good information to have. Happy lettering 🙂
