Inspirational Lettering from the World’s Most Romantic City.
From the Art Nouveau entrance of the Paris Metro to the evocative neon lettering of the Moulin Rouge, Louise Fili’s new book Graphic de la Rue: The Signs of Paris does for the city of romance what her previous book Grafica della Strada did for Italian style.
Captured over four decades, it documents her obsession with the distinctive public and commercial signage of Paris, many of which are no longer in existence. With examples covering Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Futurist architectural lettering over 264 pages, it offers essential reference material for graphic designers and those in love with typography. It’s a worthy celebration of a much-loved and a vintage style city that refuses to go out of fashion.
