87. Seven 9 Signs – The Creative City Poster (signed)

As part of The Creative City Exhibition we're auctioning one of a kind prints from our 99 artists, with most of the prints signed (shown in title – however, if listed unsigned we can work to get it signed for you), this is your opportunity to own a piece of BDF history.

Each poster is sized 800x1200mm on satin blue-back billposter paper, the same size as shown in the exhibition with postage included in the auction price. (due to the nature of the paper there may be some minor creases and inperfections.

In order to make a bid you must create an account. Successfull bidders will be required to pay on completion of the auciton.

50% of the sales from each poster will go to the artist, 40% to BDF to help support the festival and 10% to homeless charity SIFA Fireside

About the artist and work

Birmingham based sign writer and visual artist.

This text is taken from the 1854 book ‘The Grainer, Marbler & Sign Writer’s assistant’ by William Sutherland a Birmingham based sign writer who later went on to publish the seminal ‘The Art & Craft of Sign Writing’ in 1889 which became one of the most popular sign writing books of all time.

Casual lettering is the lettering style that first attracted me to sign writing. The letters are built up from as minimal amount of brush strokes as possible, based around a loose set of rules and brush strokes making the variants endless and personal to each sign writer, like a signature. Here’s some of mine that was painted off the tip of a No3 sable quill on a piece of A3 card stock.
