Finally received my copy of the much anticipated “Sign Painters” book by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon which documents the lives and works of sign painters across the U.S.
The book is to accompany a documentary, due for release early 2013, and is a fascinating insight into many characters working in the trade; their histories, their philosophies and thoughts on the current health and future prospects for hand-painted signs.
Rather than being a sentimental dip into the past, it is a refreshingly forward thinking book aimed more at inspiring new generations to pick up a brush and get busy.
Get yourself a copy…..and support your local sign painter!
