Description

This is a 1902 guide to making signs and posters by Australian writer and engineer Paul N. Hasluck. This timeless handbook offers the reader clear and concise instructions for producing a range of signs and displays for advertising and more. From painting and decorating to fonts and punctuation, it covers everything one should know before making a sign for them selves or others. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 – 1916) was an Australian writer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the 'do-it-yourself' book, producing many works on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning” (1881), “The Wrath-Jobber's Handy Book” (1887), and “Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them” (1887). Contents include: “Introduction and Preliminary Practice”, “The Formation of Letters, Stops, and Numerals”, “The Sign-Writer's Outfit”, “Making Sign-boards ad Laying Ground Colours”, “The Simpler Forms of Lettering”, “Shaded and Fancy Lettering”, “Painting a Sign-board”, “Poster-Painting”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
