Illustration: Meet London’s best traditional sign painter, Bella Pace

There aren’t many things that ring of sheer joy more than hand-painted signs – probably due to their association with sunny leisure time spent at beaches, funfairs and food establishments. But just because those places call out for sign painters doesn’t mean that everywhere else can’t be decorated really, really nicely too. Thank God for the very talented Bella Pace then, who’s spending her days creating meticulously well-crafted, hand-painted signs for businesses all over London. From Brixton Bookmongers to food stalls in Borough Market, Bella’s signs are popping up all over the place, even in music videos like the one she made for Tom Rosenthal below. Long may Bella, and the age-old craft she has totally nailed, make the world a more beautiful place.
