Faythe’s current focus is Sign Painters, a documentary and book about the trade of traditional hand lettering in America. She curates Sky High Gallery in Milwaukee and produces the annual event, Art vs. Craft, also in Milwaukee. Her personal artwork and writing have been published and exhibited internationally in both formal and renegade outlets. Levine’s first book and film Handmade Nation: The Rise of D.I.Y.
