DIY Type by Dana Tanamachi Review

Are you looking for some great stencils?  Check this out...

What is it?
50+ Typographic Stencils for Decorating, Crafting, and Gifting

What it costs?
DIY Type can be purchased for $15.73 from Amazon, here.

Per Amazon:
Inspired by the contemporary aesthetic of rendering type by hand, celebrated designer Dana Tanamachi shares a full set of upper and lower case alphabet stencils to create wall compositions, monogram t-shirts and jackets, personalize journals and school supplies, embroider pillows, and host parties filled with customized cakes and banners. With beautiful photographs and simple tutorials, you’ll find endless ways to decorate with type and joy in discovering the happy imperfections unique to your own application.

To make it simple, this is a book of different stencils.  I am not going to lie, I really should have looked at what I was getting, as I am very happy I did not pay for this book.  I saw DIY and thought I was getting a book about DIY projects.  This really does not provide you with many project ideas. The stencils are nice, but you have to cut them out which means you will be tearing apart this book. The book itself also is very limited on project ideas.

The stencils are nice though, but I have no use for these :(
