WILL SELL OR RENT TeL. 0697755776 WILL ACCEPT ADVERTIZING
This sign requires special attention due to the craftsmanship employed in its creation.
At the first glance one can’t help noticing a few letters that stand out from the others:
the ‘Y‘ for its grace, the ‘U‘ for its unexpected spur, the pointed ‘M‘s and ‘W‘s as well as the sudden
use of a small, lowercase ‘e‘ within ‘TeL‘. These peculiar details give the sign an air of spontaneity.
On the other hand, the intentionality of its design cannot be denied when taking a closer look
at the careful grid drawn behind the letters. I have raised the contrast in one of the images
to better expose the lines. All in all a beautiful example of provincial typographic skill captured
around the Polish Kurpie region by Natalia Kulka.
