**Discontinued with Limited Stock**

As recently as the 1980s, storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were hand-lettered with brush and paint. (This skilled trade has been largely replaced by computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers.) This book documents these dedicated practitioners, their time-honored methods, and their appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. It features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States profiling sign painters young and old, from the new vanguard working solo to collaborative shops such as San Francisco's New Bohemia Signs and New York's Colossal Media's Sky High Murals. 200 color illustrations.
