Gentlemen of Letters – A Dublin Sign Painting Film

Gentlemen of Letters - A Dublin Sign Painting Film-surface and surface.pngReally great shot film by Taller Stories and Toe Jam with titles by Gianni on the rich history of painted signs in Ireland from dealing with the cold weather and constantly making sure the spelling is right. Maser, James Early Kevin Freeney and Kevin Freeney Jr. give their insight into their work and influences. If you like this sort of thing you should also watch the ‘Up There’ a short about sign painters in New York.
