Synopsis:

Letterforms surround us: inscriptions or names on buildings, directional signs for road networks, and signs within and around buildings. This book focuses on the letterforms and typography found in public places that help us to navigate towns, cities, and countrysides and that contribute to a sense of place. Featuring 700 color images of examples from around the world, it discusses the function and execution of signage. Part resource, part celebration, it brings together material that is of key interest to graphic designers, lettering artists, architects, and all those who are concerned with how towns and cities look and function.
