Vienna has a long tradition of individual city lettering and was once considered a metropolis of sign painting.
In the workshop of Viennas last sign painter an exhibition shows rare sign painting works from 4 generations, the oldest pieces dating back to 1877. Josef Samuel takes visitors on a journey to a bygone era and conveys a lot of expertise and
an impression of the once varied tasks of the Viennese sign painters. Visiting the museum is like traveling back in time to those golden days when small retailers in the suburbs advertised with hand-painted signs, scripts were carefully constructed
and the letters still had soul. “It is a little-known gem which should be a place of pilgrimage for anyone in the sign and lettering world.” Sam Roberts, Better Letters
