TypArchive

I can’t remember exactly where I first saw this but TypArchive is plethora of hand painted signage. The image library is also smartly categorized by continent and three-dimensional lettering.

“Amidst a landscape of vapid strip malls and sterile signage, hand-painted lettering retains a soulful aesthetic to be treasured. Like other crafts dissolving in the digital age, sign painting is a fading occupation. Today it’s easy for any layman with minimal computer knowledge to produce a sign within minutes, but the skill acquired to artfully produce hand lettering took years of apprenticeships, dedication and true talent.” RD Granados
