Skillful Artists


While visiting a bookstore and coffee shop, I noticed these young artists who were lettering a "sale" for the store. Customers were mesmerized by their ability to letter backwards and with their obvious skills. They graciously agreed to allow me to photograph them on this bright, crisp Minnesota holiday. Hope they like the result!

  6. It isn't easy to do that, as you probably know. I used to see kids doing that in our post office windows and then the post office stopped them from doing it. Sad.

  7. Yes, this art work is certainly more difficult than it may look at a first glance! Really nice pics!

  8. je suis toujours impressionné par ces peintres qui arrivent a travailler comme cela à la main levée. c'est très beau et beau reportage photo

    I am always impressed by these artists who come to work as the show of hands. It is very nice and beautiful photo-reportage

  9. maybe they hire dyslexics for this job! Coffee shop/bookshop, a wonderful and wicked combination, guarenteed to damage the pocketbook!

  10. Had to laugh at your comments
    Suzi-k because that was my thought originally. Thanks to the rest of you, too. And, yes, I did buy a book while I was there sipping my java and reading the newspapers.

  12. Maybe they were left-handed. I can do that (not so well as they did) because I am left-handed. I can write with both hands... I have a terrible handwriting :-)
