While in New York City recently for the National Stationery Show, we found that not everything inspiring was happening just inside the Javits Center. With a sharp eye, there was some appealing typography in signage that was spotted during our travels. We all can appreciate a well turned font and a clever capital that gets the message across. Shown here are just four images we snapped, but we also recommend checking out the artful NYC Type, a site that reveals some of the classic lettering hidden high and low along the streets of New Y0rk City. Click on each picture on the NYC Type website for the location of each photo.
