Hi all
sign writing and glass embossing; a complete practical manual of the art. by james callingham
Has anyone got this book ? Is it worth getting? I know it was first published in the 1800s

HI Terry,
Of course !- If its out there.

I found a copy a few years ago- quite a small book but chunky (and very much of its time) but much of it still relevant.
reads as you would expect - The pre-runner to Sutherland's Modern signwriter , Hearn's Art of signwriting and Stewart's Signwork.

Heres a free link to some of it :
