In The Art of Doodle Words, YouTube artist Sarah Alberto shows you how to combine hand lettering and carefree doodles into your own artwork.

If you love the look of hand lettering and calligraphy, but find it too intimidating or perhaps too ornate, then The Art of Doodle Words is the book for you. Now you can learn the basics of lettering just by doodling. Sarah Alberto, the artist behind the popular YouTube channel Doodles by Sarah, likes to start her doodle words with a simple letter or word.

Whether you're drawing a word like cold or love or idea, Sarah will show you how to transform it into doodles using super-cute sketches and simple lines. A basic word becomes an adorable illustration. Sarah will also teach you how to work in reverse, starting with a doodle and turning it into a cute illustration of letters and words.

Pick up The Art of Doodle Words and begin learning stress-free, laid-back lettering styles now!

The Art of Doodle Words is a cute read. It's nicely presented, with some lovely illustrations. It certainly offers plenty of inspiration. I might have liked a little more technical substance, but maybe that's not right for this style of book. As someone who is obsessed with realism and perfection in art, I am keen to expand my horizons and attempt something more freestyle, and this book has definitely given me a nudge to try to bring a little more doodle to my day. I would recommend The Art of Doodle Words for those looking to try their hand at something artsy for the first time, and also for bullet journal fans looking for ways to spice up their spreads.
