Trading Pit Hand Signals

Trading Pit Hand Signal illustrations.

I produced a series of illustrations with former Chicago Mercantile Exchange trader Ryan Carlson for his online archive Trading Pit History. This project seeks to catalog and preserve the history and culture of open outcry trading floors, which have nearly all been replaced by computer trading. 

We made a limited edition of illustrated posters which were screenprinted in Chicago by Dan Grzeca. The hand signal illustrations were also used for the beautiful book, Trading Pit Hand Signals.
