What are the origins of the exuberant swash letters that can be found on the windows of many of Amsterdam's most traditional bars? Who painted them? Was it a collective creation, or the work of a lone gifted letter painter? How old is the style? For almost a decade the authors of 'The Curly Letter of Amsterdam' thoroughly researched this lettering style and documented every surviving example in Amsterdam, Maastricht, and Ghent in an effort to answer these questions and raise awareness of the importance of this little known chapter of the Dutch graphical tradition.
