We're big fans of craftsmanship and the hand-made, here, so it will come as no surprise at all that the tradition of neon sign crafting delights many of us. I was recently alerted to Gasper & Son
, a documentary about a small neon business of the same name in New York City. The film was made last year by Freckless Productions, whose previous film about my favourite childhood novel, The Phantom Tolbooth
, is also rather delightful. I've only seen the trailer for Gasper & Son so far, but you can watch the whole thing online for free:
There is also a screening
coming up in New York on Monday evening, so if you're nearby it might be worth investigating!
