Study conventional steam truthful signwriting

Carters, the traveling Victorian steam fair, publishes a book about one of the fair’s iconic images – the signage.

The new book Signwriting: Tips, Trick and Inspiration is a guide to the world of traditional signwriting and fairground art from the unique perspective of Joby Carter or Carter’s Steam Fair.

Described as overflowing with over 370 color photos of inspiring brush-painted signs and fairgrounds, with loads of useful tips on how to draw and paint great letters.

The book is aimed at artists and typography freaks, either for themselves or as a Christmas present – the book can be pre-ordered from here.

This website has been operating for a little over a decade. Ad revenue helps fund the site but doesn’t cover its costs. That’s why I set up a facility called DonorBox where you can contribute to the cost of the website and the time it takes to write and research the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are trying to generate income in the face of rising costs and falling advertising.

Regardless of whether it is a one-off donation or a regular donation, any additional support will go a long way towards covering the ongoing costs of this website and regularly replenishing you with news and facts from Londony.

Many thanks
