Re: [Authentic_SCA] painted signs?
- The Holbein brothers painted a couple of sign boards for a Schoolmaster, you might try them for inspriation.
Signboard for a Schoolmaster, 1516, Hans Holbein the Younger
Signboard for a Schoolmaster, 1516, Ambrosius Holbein
Also, if you have access to an art library, I'd recommend looking through the German Single-leaf woodcuts, 1500-1550, there are several peasent fair scenes in there that have signboards.

Subject: [Authentic_SCA] painted signs?
I don't know if this topic has been discussed here before, but I'm
looking for information about painted signs (for shops, etc) in the
late 1500s. I haven't found a whole lot of pictorial evidence, and not
much information of any sort. I need to make a sign for an upcoming
event and want to do it accurately, or at least plausibly. When the
standard investigative methods fail to yield results, I usually figure
that someone on the auth. list will have ideas. :-) Does anyone here
have suggestions for resources, in print or online? I'd be much
thanks very much!
