Full title: Signs – Signboards and Store signs in Europe and the United States of America.
When you create a visual book devoted to one subject, you need to do it justice. This book on signs for commercial properties and shops reveals the lost art of hand painted, carved and wrought-iron signage. With over 900 colour plates, this book is far more than merely an amusing picture book. It is also a useful guide and reference to a great number of aesthetic ideas.
