A Little About Brush Lettering
Brush lettering dates back centuries to when the Romans and Greeks were forming their letter-forms. Brush letter-forms became widely popular in the 1800s and early 1900s when sign-painting was needed for nearly all advertising needs, storefronts, etc. It was widely used because of its speed and functionality.
Brush lettering is still used to this day because the tradition was passed down through apprenticeships. What's really cool is that all sign-painters have their own quirks and techniques to make their brush script. That means that nearly every brush-script letter-form looks completely uniqueWorkshop Details
