Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs News Magazine Review by did not disappoint

'I have always been interested in the signwriter's art, displayed to this day even by such contemporary motorcycle manufacturers at Triumph and Royal Enfield skilfully applying fuel tank lining freehand. Sub-titled 'The Tales and Photographs of a Traditional Signwriter' I was hoping this 152 page hardback book, beautifully produced and with 200+ pictures of the author's work applied to vehicles, would reveal some of the secrets, it did not disappoint as a detailed description is given of the techniques and materials employed, including the curiously named 'Mahl' stick, the surprisingly long lining brushes and how gold leaf is applied.' - Nick Jeffery (Posted on 19/03/2018)

Mid Devon Advertiser Review Review by Mid Devon Advertiser Review
Rating
'John’s new book captures all the glory and individuality of a more romantic, but perhaps tougher, period in road haulage... The book could well be the first of its kind... Beautifully illustrated with more than 200 rare colour photos, this would make an ideal Christmas present for anyone with an interest in our transport heritage.' - Mid Devon Advertiser (Posted on 01/11/2017)
