B2927. Mexican Blackletter / Paoli
B2927.Mexican Blackletter by Cristina Paoli. 2006. 96pp. 10"x11". Hardcover.

**Discontinued with Limited Stock**

Blackletter is a popular script in Mexico for everything from folk art to signage. This book introduces the kinds of blackletter, the cultural connotations of blackletter, and those specific to Mexico. It then presents the photos of many examples of uses of blackletter in signage in its colorful variations: standard, drop shadow, extended & condensed, and deviations & unpredictable. The several full color collage pages of collages of single letters are a visual treat. (This book is about the vernacular use rather than refined calligraphic forms.)
