Decisions – The Canal Art of Phil Speight

  • Author: Phil Speight
  • Binding: Paperback

This book showcases signwriting and decorative painting of canal boats from nearly 40 years of Phil Speight's experience, and a passion for research into the history of boat decoration. This ranges from the traditional roses and castles of working boat decoration to everything from dogs to lighthouses and Durham Cathedral, and from exact copies of historic canal carrying company liveries to informal modern designs. So why the title? Because there are always decisions to make: how big to make the letters, what shape the scrolls should be, what font, what type of shadowing, how much to copy historic artwork, and how much to use his own imagination.
