Sign Painting | A Practical Guide to Tools, Materials & Techniques | Mike Meyer & Friends
There have been some great books about sign painting - the visual aspects, examples of the work, etc., but very few books on the fundamentals, the craft, the equipment, and the processes.
Sign Painting, written by Mike Meyer (the co-founder of Better Letters), is the book that all keen hand letterers have been waiting for. Starting with a comprehensive look at the sign painter's toolkit and moving on to core techniques, this book is sure to become a recognised text on the subject.
Factor in a gallery of over 40 alphabets (upper and lower case, of course) drawn by some properly skilled artisans and you've got an essential guide in your hands.
