I thought I would share this shot (sent to me by Anthony Swaneveld) of the Helvetica exhibit at the MoMA in New York. It looks like a good exhibit. It's on until the end of March if you happen to be in New York.
After admiring the signs and lettering on my walks to work, I wanted to document what I had found. We often discuss the cultural impact of architecture and urban spaces but rarely the words and letters found in these spaces. So here is villatype, a visual record and discussion of type and lettering found in the public domain. I hope you will all take part by adding to the dialogue and posting your own finds.
Call for submissions
villatype is always searching for found type and lettering in any public space. You can send me images along with your name, city, street and date. Or, even better, become a contributor and post them yourself by emailing me your contact info and I will add you as a contributor.
