Cultural Stories Revealed Through Typography
By Stephen Banham, Rick Poynor
In Characters, Stephen Banham has meticulously researched the signage and typography of a city to present an exuberant collection of quirky, poignant and often funny stories.
We really enjoyed this book about Melbourne's signs because the authors have thoroughly researched each and every sign, found pics, and diagrams in some cases including background information on each sign.
We receive a regular stream of questions about old Melbourne neon signs like the Allen's sign that stood alongside the Yarra where Southbank now is. Once regarded as the most spectacular animated sign in Victoria, the book devotes 14 pages to the famous Allen's sign that crashed to the ground when the building was demolished in 1987.
