Beautifully crafted typography is always an eye catcher, and beautiful typography spotted in the everyday environment is even better. I have recently found out about Molly Woodward, a Brooklyn based graphic designer who has catalogued examples of declining but wonderful environmental type on the website of her Vernacular Typography project. It contains examples of urban typography from around the world, and is well worth a look.

All over the world, there are cities and towns that retain their rich traditions of vernacular signage … this website seeks to collect and document examples of these vanishing symbols of art and culture.”
