Distinctive hand lettering is an essential skill for artists and designers. Deftly executed letter froms are a nearly forgotten art in an age of endless free fonts. Graffiti is one of the last reservoirs of highly refined, well practiced penmanship. The most reviled and persecuted form of Graffiti, the Tag, is seldom appresiated for the raw beauty of its skeletal letter forms. Most tags are removed immediately, and the casual viewer seldom has a chance to descern the difference between entry level and advanced hand styles. Within the pages of Flip the Script, author Christian Acker systematically analyzes the best graffiti writers from around the United States. Acker presents the lettering samples in a clean organized format, giving the material a proper formal treatment evoking classic typography books.
