Meet Josef Samuel, Vienna’s Last Signpainter
Josef Samuel is a 4th generation signpainter from Vienna, Austria, and founder of the city’s incredible Schildermalermuseum. Following a visit to the museum in 2016 the idea of making a film about this remarkable man began to take shape. The short film eventually premiered at the London Letterheads meet in August 2018, and has subsequently been screened at locations around the world. On Monday it was released online.
