This book focuses on the letterforms and typography in public places, from road signs to building names, that help us to navigate cities and countryside and contribute to a sense of place. Featuring examples from around the world, the book discusses the function and execution of signage. Visually led, Signs contains 700 colour images grouped thematically and described in extended captions, showing the best current examples alongside historical material. This is the first book to look at recent developments in the field and to give a broad overview of signage.
