That font is a lovely and very welcome reprieve from the onslaught of Helvetica I encounter daily.
Quite marvelous. I am always on the lookout for buildings with signage of some sort carved in to the facade. This is a particularly fine example. I'm also reading the same book, quite interesting, I think it is. RD
Fantastic pictures. I also have MAD WORLD... but am re-reading BRIDESHEAD just to give me a point of reference for the book.
Woody - yes, so relieving to see something a bit 'different'!Reggie -I'm loving the book as well. I had just finished 'Madresfield' by Mulvagh and was a bit disappointed but this fills in the gaps for me.Cosign - I haven't read the book myself in about 10 years, maybe it should be next on my list!
Sometimes institutions were so proud of their new architecture, they wanted to spend time and money designing beautiful signs. These are two of them, complete with date (bless their hearts).
Beautiful building and yes I am always intrigued by those signs!Have a nice Sunday!xxGreet
I am always drawn to buildings with great signage or motto, especially carved in stone.
Agreed, wouldn't it be great if there were more beautiful signs?Enjoy your posts,BarbaraG
Agree with Hels. We are bombarded so much with the garish in signage. Stefan these examples are such a wonder to see.xoxoKarenaArt by Karena
The Waugh book is great... been trying to post on it for months. Maybe this will get me going.
