Jessica Hische is a lettering artist and author with a tendency to overshare and a penchant for procrastiworking.

T he follow-up to New York Times Best-selling Tomorrow I’ll Be Brave is now available! While Brave encourages readers to enrich their own lives, Kind is all about helping others through big and small acts. The two books complement each other well—first we have to take care of ourselves and then we’ll have the energy, enthusiasm, and ability to help others. Like Brave, Tomorrow I’ll be Kind is filled with beautiful lettering and illustration, but with even more depth and richness. Read more about it here.

The perfect gateway drug to the world of lettering and type.

  • Is there any greater thrill than a peek behind the curtain to see how a great magician’s tricks are really done? Jessica Hische provides that peek, and anyone who cares about drawing, lettering, or—dare I say—the power of the written word will be absolutely enthralled with what she reveals.

    Michael Bierut, Partner at Pentagram
  • Unlike most focused type and lettering books, Jessica covers a very broad range of topics in very approachable terms. From formal models of letter construction and serif structure all the way through software suggestions, vector drafting, and decorative shading. It functions as a perfect gateway drug to the world of lettering and type, building a solid foundation by addressing the biggest real-world issues. Plus, it’s just damn nice to look at.
