Rescued fonts

Fonts, beautiful fonts…what’s not to like? These were in old neon signage, at Warsaw’s Neon museum – rescued from oblivion

  1. I love fonts, especially the Eastern Bloc, pre-1989 ones. I also have a penchant for 1920s/30s fonts from the Art Deco period. Your examples are very good indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. So glad they were rescued! 🙂

  3. There’s something magical about just the name Neon Museum, isn’t there — I can imagine a film or novel with just such a title — but to have exhibits as stylish as these, perhaps with their own little slice of history or significance outlined in a caption, that must be the icing on the cake. Thanks for sharing, Sue!

  4. Great captures of these beautiful old fonts, Sue. 🙂

  5. Yes, they’re splendid!

  6. Splendid indeed! Here they would have been discarded as trash.

  7. I love the colors in these. I’ll have to visit for myself, but you and Viveka have made me feel as if I don’t really need to. A beautiful post.

  9. Wonderful. I love these, especially the ones in the bottom left corner. 🙂

  10. Ah, love, love…the colour as well!
