Font series: I
For my birthday this year I was given a book Just my Type. It was probably because I take photos like this one.
I really like looking at the signs in cities, in the lettering used on public buildings, on monuments, on statues, public transport systems. I also really like to take pictures of them. This particular one is from the base of a statue in the grounds of the Strahov Monastery. I have no idea what the words around it said, and no particular interest in ever finding out. But I think they made great pictures. Prague, by the way, is a great city to visit. Even if you are afraid of eastern and/or central Europe.
(By the way, I am not sure if this counts as a typeface, or if it’s really more of a logo…)
Photo by PJD at Strahov Monastery; it was Easter, 2011. Which is to say, it was a warmer day than we had all summer…
