An overall picture of the application of letters and captions in everyday city life.
The book and the exhibition present a photographic overview of typographic expressions in Eindhoven, ranging from the text on manhole covers to posters and route signs. Besides many pictures, the book also contains the viewpoints of experts such as graphic designers, policy makers, architects, graffitists and poets and the outcome of a study into alternative ways of city advertising, carried out by students of the Design Academy Eindhoven. The book appeared in an edition of 1000 copies.
