B4103. Signs of Italy / Clough
B4103. Signs of Italy: Outdoor Lettering Up and Down the Boot by James Clough. 2015. 248pp, 12"x8.5". Hardcover

Before typefaces and fonts dominated the scene, there was no standardization in Italy of letterforms for commercial signs, and there were no printed manuals for signwriters. This detachment from standard models and the craftsmanship and creativity of the signmakers and designers are what make Italian signs so extraordinary, and provides such a variety of original letterforms. Whimsical, intuitive, humorous, improvised, and elegant: Italian signs are a mirror of Italian society. From the ornate Tuscan style of the 19th century to the eccentric letters of Art Nouveau, from the grandiose architectural lettering of the 1930s to the exquisite surviving examples of the old signwriters, from fascist ghost signs to lettering on manhole covers, the book takes you on a fascinating lettering tour of Italy. Over 300 full-color photographs.

B4107. Buchstäblich: Hans Schmidt
B4107. Buchstäblich: Hans Schmidt, Arbeiten von (Work from) 1992-1998. 1998. 34pp. 8.25"x10.25". Paper

Displays 28 letterworks, both on paper and sculptural. Includes introduction by Javis Lauva. The title is, perhaps, a play on words: Buchstäblich is the German word for “literally” and Buchstaben is German for “letters,” hence “literally letters,” an apt description of Schmit’s art. Text in German.
