“Out of a need to leave my place and explore I started to document the typography of various older apartment buildings. I fell in love. It became a treasure hunt of unique discoveries, some I happened upon while others I tracked down online. The charm and character from decades past led me to daydream of what these apartments must look like inside, or how they appeared in their prime. These signs show a lost typographic art form, one I wish that new developments in the city would bring back.”
