Talk to the hand

I love this sign. It’s got shades of Hanna-Barbera or Looney Tunes about it. Its remained on the front of that building through the many changes of tenant, pointing the way to redemption, with its oversized thumbnail, and elegant shirt cuff. Probably the best sign in Blackheath, (after the bridge weight sign of course).

The serif typeface around it appears to be Pompeii, which seems appropriate to the Roman Catholic Church…

The best pen

As selected in The Wirecutter, and sold in Blackheath Rymans for £2.99 (the Uniball Jetstream). Seems pretty good, even for a left handed scrawler.
