We are fascinated by the presence of typography in our daily lives. We are particularly interested in the stories and history embedded into type that appears to be physically worn into a particular place. What does it say about this place? Who put it here? How was it made or applied? Why was it created the way it was? Is it still relevant? These are questions we consider as we encounter letters and words each day. We believe that there is treasure everywhere and by keeping our eyes open and imaginations alive, our world becomes a better place.
Please feel free to submit your own bits of treasure. To create a post, click submit and label your photo as the others in the collection. We are looking for original photos, not images pulled from elsewhere on the web.
Search by city and state to see if we have documented great type in your area.
