Not all I had hope for, most of the letters I properly will never use

Excellent resource for visual recorders/facilitators

De omschrijving van het boek legt helder en volledig uit wat dit boek je brengt: een bijzonder duidelijke handleiding voor een pallet aan bruikbare lettertypes. Heather begint met de basis namelijk welke markers te gebruiken en hoe markers op verschillende manieren kunnen gebruikt worden. Ze legt erg duidelijk uit hoe de letters op te bouwen, welke markers geschikt zijn voor elk letter type, variaties op de lettertypes etc. Bovendien refereert Heather naar haar online resources, waar nog meer inspiratie te vinden is.

Brillant und praxisnah

Das perfekte Handbuch für jeden Markernutzer, der rasch umsetzbare Tips für interessante Überschriften oder Heraushebungen sucht.
Das Buch ist so gut illustriert, dass man die Anleitungen auch versteht ohne gut Englisch zu können, auch wenn einem dann die amüsanten Reisegeschichten entgehen.
Besonders gut finde ich die kostenlos zum Download angebotenen Übungsblätter.

Gutes Buch, aber nicht alle Schriften sind im Buch enthalten!

In dem Buch werden verschiedene Schriften schön dargestellt und mit den verschiedenen Hinweisen kann man sie auch gut üben. Bis dahin ein guter Kauf!
Was mich aber sehr enttäuscht hat ist, dass eine von acht Schriftarten eigentlich komplett wegfällt (und es ist auch noch eine sehr interessante für die täglich Arbeit). Man muss sich die Videoanleitung dazu auf der Webseite der Autorin für weitere 25$ kaufen, was ich im Verhältnis zum Preis des Buches als Wucher empfinde. Das hätte man auf eine andere Art lösen sollen.
