Ave | Sunday t-shirt


Ave | sunday closed | 7th day t-shirt

This Sunday’s t-shirt is inspired by a book for sign painters. Trained craftsmen who used to paint words, onto shop windows for example. It has been out of sight for quite a while, but it’s back I have noticed, beautifully constructed pieces of typography are to be found on bars and concept stores nowadays. (So much easier to design with computer, print, apply, then trace and fill, if needed)

The examples in this book are very basic sign typography, but! intended to copy by hand.

The words picture a different era. When shops were closed on Sundays…
