20th Annual Fonts Festival : fonts, lettering and typography surf for September

by Fred Showker

20th Annual Fall Fonts Festival Page 4 This is the last of this surf, but now we get to have some real fun watching seasoned professionals with real talent apply real ink in creating some superb lettering! I'm also very pleased to bring the official trailer for the movie "Sign Painter" -- a fantastic documentary on the art, craft and times of sign painting. Later, we'll dig deeper into the documentary, but for now, enjoy the September Fonts surf . . .
