From Diners to Detectives: American Vintage & Antique Signs highlights a wide range of signage graphics as well as a variety of typography styles and hand-lettered fonts. Using materials such as paper, cardboard, wood, tin, steel, porcelain and neon, sign makers in the United States employed a wide variety of techniques to create their works. Signage is initially intended to be practical and functional for commercial use, yet ultimately is artful in composition and execution. These vintage and antique signs, like paintings or photographs, offer a glimpse into times gone by.
