Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This versatile volume contains the essential typographic elements for creating ads with a nostalgic flair. Drawn from a pair of sign-painting manuals that were originally published early in the 20th century, this compilation abounds in borders, frames, typography, and a host of other images, all ideal for re-creating authentic styles from the 1890s to the 1920s. Plates from the two source books depict the color and black-and-white images in their original usage, and a CD-ROM includes JPEG files of all the images.

Synopsis:

Highlights from a pair of century-old sign-painting manuals include borders, frames, typography, and other images for creating advertisements with an authentic period flair. A CD-ROM features all of the book's images.
