    Have you ever wondered how those fancy Victorian-style gilded glass signs and mirrors were made? Not the cheap silk-screened ones you see everywhere, but the real deal... the carved, engraved, gilded and hand-lettered ones.

    This guy in the UK does it, and i'm absolutely blown away. His lettering and typographic skill is simply astounding, but add to that the fact that he actually engraves the letters into glass... i'm totally blown away.

    Wow, that is really cool.

    Tedious, meticulous, and perfectionism immediately come to mind. I don't think I would have the patience for that.
