repost - ed emberley

since the snowflake lessons were well recieved, here is a re-posting. this page from an ed emberley book. i do not have the book, the page is out on the internet.

ed: if you want me to take it down, i will. but, you should know that you are my inspiration for how to spend my next 20 years.

ed is 84, i'll be 64. he has written over 80 books. many are how-to books and i think i should compile my how-to handouts for lettering and envelopes into a book.

in the meantime, let's all make some fun santas and reindeer. and go buy an ed emberly book. they really are a recipe for fun. or check one out from the library.


his website redirects you to amazon.


  1. I agree that you should make a book with your handouts. I refer to the few I have quite often.
    Any hints for scattered spacing of elements? I try to not have them aligned in a straight line. I balance them side to side and top & bottom. It doesn't look right to me and I keep adding to it and then before I know it, there is too much!

  2. yes - i do have a system for evenly spaced scattering. i'll post a handout tomorrow :-)

    1. Yes, I too would love another alphabet book. I have 5 chicks and need all the resources I can get. They are so eager to learn, it's a pleasure
