A documentary about lettercutting, in both monumental inscriptions and on gravestones. The filmmakers were given complete access over a two year period to the work of the craftsmen of the John Stevens Shop in Newport, Rhode Island, the oldest business in the United States still in continuous operation in the same colonial building. It chronicles the work of John 'Fud' Benson, then the owner and principal designer, and, arguably, one of the most accomplished letter cutters in the world. Arts & Crafts, Traditional, Work / Northeast / 1979
