David A. Smith is a traditional sign-writer/designer specialising in high-quality ornamental hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. David recently produced a wonderful turn-of-the-century, trade-card styled album cover for popular American singer/songwriter John Mayer.
This is such an astounding piece of work. The level of craftsmanship and detail that went into this album is impossible for me to wrap my head around. This is an album I may just have to buy in order to keep this little piece of history.
Thanks for Ryan McGovern of Design Chat for the tip.
