Italian Letters

Faded Art Nouveau lettering in Gubbio

While we’re saddened and dismayed by the utter lack of typographic quality of most contemporary Italian signage, it’s always nice to find interesting examples of vintage lettering scattered in the commercial and street signs of our towns and villages. We photographed these lovely leftovers of a bygone, more elegant era, around Central Italy this Summer.
