Yet another dying art

When I went to see the apprenticeship commission as a teenager Signwriter was one of the trades I considered.

I've often wondered what would have become of me if I'd chosen to pursue it.

Would I have transitioned into graphic design or typography?

Doubt it. I'd probably have ended up painting houses.

Either way with the art of signwriting in decline I wonder what has become of all those those talented craftsmen.
