SIGN PAINTERS DOCUMENTARY REVIEW
SUMMARY: We’re wrapping up our pre-season with a review of the documentary Sign Painters (2013, directed by Sam Macon and Faythe Levine). How much did we swoon for all the hand-lettering? How did we feel about this film highlighting dozens of white dudes? We talk type vs. lettering, work-for-hire, function vs. aesthetic and peak chalkboard.Signpainters Instagram, The Revival of America’s Hand-painted Sign Industry by Ester Bloom for the Atlantic, Charlene’s painted window for CAKE Plus-Sized Resale.
