People today are obsessed with finding handmade products from the past. Hand painted signs are a huge object of desire for collectors. From weekend excursions to popular television shows, unearthing these petina’d beauties gives us a glimpse into the past when things were made by hand and with great care and love. In some parts of the world, this kind of signage is still being created. HandpaintedType is working to preserve this beautiful skill in India, where street painters are abandoning their trade due to new technology. Here is hoping for great success.
