Designers Daniel and Klaus Bellon have been photographing street signage around the world for more than 17 years. This book celebrates their love of typography, and highlights the beauty of type in its truest form; not as a profession but as a necessity of everyday life.
The images captured here are at times humorous, unexpected and even charming. But for those who understand the rules that are being broken, these explorations of type design are refreshing and inspiring.
Even though graphic designers often think of themselves as the keepers of letterforms and typography, they do not own them.
Typography belongs to everyone.
Typography belongs to the people.
Includes a royalty-free CD with 15 original fonts inspired by signs in the book.
Type images were collected from countries around the world, including the United States, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Belize, Canada, Colombia, Venezuela, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, and Malaysia.
