Hand lettering alphabet video tutorials from A to Z!

We’ve created a hand lettering video alphabet for you to refer to as you build your calligraphy skills.  We show you in real time the formation of all the letters from A to Z using different pens and styles.

Hand lettering expert and Commissioning Editor of Simply Lettering, Lou Collins takes you through multiple ways to form each letter of the alphabet. Once you have mastered basic line making with your pens you are ready to start practicing the alphabet. It’s best to try each letter at a time, creating a whole page of a’s, then b’s and so on. You can use lined paper or plain, the important thing is repetition.

We will be adding a new video here daily until we get all the way through the alphabet, so check back each day and be sure to share your lettering practice with us using our Simply Lettering community hashtag #simplyletteringmagazine or over in our closed Facebook group where only fellow hand lettering enthusiasts will see it. We have beginners through to experienced calligraphers in the group and everyone is welcome.

Our first issue goes on sale in the UK on July 18th – we have an amazing deal for early bird subscribers – just £6 for the first 3 issues, every issue comes packed with inspiration and advice from experts and includes a pen set on the front for you to start to build your collection.

    Absolutely fascinating to watch. It is not unlike how I learned to write at Primary school so brought back happy memories.

    I agree these are fascinating to watch but I’m not sure how I can do this lettering as I’m left-handed. Would it be possible for a series of left-handed videos to be produced?

      Hi Val. Yes, we have plans for some left-handed videos to support those left handers who want to learn lettering too

    I have been looking for something like this for ages – thank you. I would really love to subscribe but am in Australia and not sure the local newsagent will put away regularly. Are you going to make subscription available in Australia – please !!!
