by M.C.Hillick, Merri M. Ferrell (Introduction)

Today's collectors who seek instruction on painting and decorating their vehicles can do no better than to read this reprint of M.C. Hillick's book on the subject. The book, organized not unlike the structure of an apprenticeship, is divided into 16 chapters: The Shop and Its Equipment; Buying, Using, and Preserving Brushes; The Surfacing Stage of Painting; Colors; The Application of Colors to Surfaces; Varnish, and the Marvelous Thing About It; Depravities of Varnish; Striping and Its Purpose; Scroll Painting; Lettering; Monograms; Painting and the Modern Business Wagon; Repainting and Revarnishing Vehicles; A Practical Study of Materials; Painting Cutters and Sleighs; and Facts and Formulas from the Paint Shop Diary. The book is full of beautiful ornaments, lettering and striping-all of great help to the carriage, wagon or sleigh collector/restorer. the sign painter, the graphic artist, or simply those who seek a unique and intimate insight into the aesthetics of 19th and early 20th century material culture. 180 pages. 6" x 9". Illustrated throughout. Soft bound.
