10 top traditional art tools for September

In this month's roundup, we look at a new book explaining how to make your mark in hand lettering, plus all the kit to get you started. It's also your last chance to check out a remarkable exhibition at the Tate (we flick through the accompanying book), and we take a look at the Japanese craft of turning random blots into art. 

We've got a great how-to on expressive flower painting, a cool new coffeetable book exploring the world of urban potters, and finally – maybe we're a bit early, but we've also got an arty 2018 pocket diary.
