Chronicle Books loves hand-painted signs

I remember some years ago, a troop of their designers came by the shop (when I was holed up in a 4th floor room at 3rd and Townsend) for a brief demo of, I think, glass gilding, and/or just my process of carrying projects from sketch, to perforated penciled pattern, to sign.  They rewarded me with a copy of Hatch Show Print that I still dip into frequently, and today they've given us a shout out on their blog. Y'all must have an all new troop of designers by now--ring us up, drop on by!
