This amazing book became a member of my library several days ago. When I was in pre school, I used to check out all the typeface books from a local library, and tried to learn how to draw proper fonts.  Wish I had this book back then. 
This book helps you draw something like this…

As artists, I know many people try new styles, but I still love those classic styles.  It is interesting that historic styles (Romanesque, Gothic, Neo Classic, etc) in typeface seem to have followed slightly different patterns as in architectural styles.

I am still drawing and above is my first trial of a street scape.  Totally enjoyed it and hope to do it more.  Still.drawing.
