Preserving Typographic Beauty in India

HandPainted Type

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.
