About This Blog

The Pub Art a la cARTe blog focusses on the art of the traditional pub sign.

Inn and pub signs were very often hand painted and unique works of art in their own right. Sadly, many fine examples have now disappeared forever along with the pubs that they were once associated with. This blog aims to create an image database of at least some of those that still survive.


In order to illustrate the loss of the traditional signs the blog will also feature posts of new / modern signs that replaced them.
