All around us, all too often ignored, signs are an inescapable feature of modern life: road signs, warning signs, instructions, prohibitions, building names and even pub signs. With over 700 thematically arranged images from places as far apart as Britain, Iceland, the USA, Korea, South Africa and China, this ground-breaking study discusses the form, function and typography of public signage, demonstrating how it helps us to navigate our cities and countryside while contributing to our sense of place.
