LETTERING, ILLUSTRATION & SIGNS AT HENRY FORD MUSEUM

LETTERING, ILLUSTRATION & SIGNS AT HENRY FORD MUSEUM

I visited the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan over the holidays.  The museum houses historical items from machinery to cars to home items and displays.  The museum is meant to document how objects and places were used in the past and how they have changed.

I loved seeing the lettering, illustration and signs from the past.  The color combinations, style and designs really catch your eye as you go through the museum.  Here are a few that caught my eye.

I tried my hand at sign making in my art journal here.
