Default Old Sign and scroll saw ideas

Here are a couple of old publications that could be interesting for sign makers and scroll saw folks. You can read them online or download a pdf. Although they are old they can still jump-start some ideas. Click on the titles to go to the links.

Strong's Book of Designs (1917) Lots of shapes and some interesting fret work patterns.

The signist; a compilation of the most modern and artistic designs, valuable to sign writers, draughtsmen, designers, architects, engravers, etc. (1903)

You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. ~Oscar Wilde
