    Thanks for the video, John.

    I just hope they washed their hands really well before handling everything.

    Adam Savage is back with more printed movie props. This time he is at Earl Hays Press looking at explosives packaging used in movies.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMZ63jv39vQ

    As a model railroader, I try to replicate vintage signs seen in old photographs for use on my model railroad.

    Leah’s article has great advice on how she makes old-timey signage for things like Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I was fascinated, very smart stuff.

    I was very impressed with the period typographical props in Mrs. Maisel (not to mention everything else about the show). My only (minor) complaint was the use of House's Fabulous Script (slightly modified) for the logo of the fictional talk show's logo (The Gordon Ford Show). But it's one of those cases where, even though it's technically an anachronism, it looks the part.
