Une Cité Moderne, part 1

In 1922 French architect Rob Mallet-Stevens published a portfolio of 32 stunning modernist designs for the constituent buildings of the city of today. The black and white line drawings are stenciled with striking colours. Here are the first four, a cinema, bank, museum and club.

“H. Génot – cordonnerie – bourrellerie” trouvé à Champigneulles (54). #sign #Signs #signpainting #signpainter #signgeek #peintreenlettres #vernaculartypography #typelove #typehunter #typographie #typography #champigneulles #lorraine #igersfrance #enseigne #enseignes #cordonnerie #cordonnier #bourrellerie #vintage #vintageshop #vintagesign #artisan #shopfront #storefront #ghostsign #abandonned #lettrage #lettering #handlettering (à Champigneulles, Lorraine, France)

Sur les Traces d’un Passé Urbain (On the Traces Of An Urban Past) is a fine book of photos of French ghostsigns as revealed on the fascias and walls of the country’s redundant shops. Created and published by @pixdar (Pixdar Photographies) there are many glorious leftover delights on show in the uniform large format one-to-a-page shots (some of which I’ve snapped myself on recent trips to France).

69 photos in all in this pleasingly produced volume, available here for £17.50
