Blog > Wall-dogging at the Imperial War Museum
Wall-dogging, is an old sign painters term from the 1920's when huge signs where often painted onto the sides of buildings.
This interesting commision meant a challenging time lettering these quotes by hand directly to a rough cast concrete effect display at the Imperial War Museum in the City of London.
The five quotes and a map where painstakingly painted in signwriter's colour, using sable brushes and a delicate touch.
The display will form part of 'War Story' -A display featuring the first-hand experiences of British service personnel currently serving in Afghanistan which have been recorded for present and future generations.
Well worth a look if you are in town !
