David Smith and the art of sign writing

With so much horrendously kerned insensitive type and signage about, it is inspiring and reassuring to see the work of David Smith, an English sign writer. Perpetuating the tradition of hand cut, gilded ornamental glass signs, he creates the magnificent signs that can be found in pubs throughout Great Britain. A master class in typography and the art of sign writing.

Great film production as well - really just a pleasure to watch and to post. Thanks for doing what you do David!

Truly an art!
