Readers who have been following Seraphic Secret for a while are aware of our fondness for signs. In signage we detect various levels of aesthetics including grammar, fonts—remember when virtually everything was Helvetica—to the use of color. And of course, signs frequently stand witness to the health or deterioration of a particular community’s economic condition.
Over the past few years we’ve snapped hundreds of photos of signs. And as an educational device we’ve arranged selected pictures as an ABC photo essay with images from Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Teaneck and, of course, Brooklyn.
