Over the holiday break I’ve been enjoying a book (yes, an actual paper book) given to me by a dear friend and project partner. Sign Painters by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon is a collection of stories and images about a form of design that is at the same time utterly utilitarian and astoundingly beautiful. Levine and Macon introduce us to masters that established the craft and bucking-the-trenders that keep blazing ahead. The documentary film aspect of the project is set to premiere in early 2013. Time to work on my lettering.
