David A. Smith is an artist from England renowned for his traditional hand-crafted signs, which are etched and gilded on the reverse side of glass.
David recently produced a cover for American singer/songwriter John Mayer's album "Born and Raised" by matching the style of turn-of-the-century trade cards and letterheads.
This behind-the-scenes video captures the many stages of the process. The video is by Danny Cooke, shot on a Canon 7D.
