Christian Acker’s Flip the Script, a book which analyzes graffiti handstyles in a formal typographic construct, was dubbed an instant classic by writers and designers alike upon its release in 2013. Following in this tradition, Handselecta’s Blackbook is a tribute to the work that goes into developing a strong, consistent handstyle. Acker designed the book with 32 gridded pages, 32 lined pages and 64 blank pages so you have both structured and free-form options for developing your letterforms. Practice makes perfect!
