    i don’t know if you’ve seen this. it’s all about outdoor advertising and its affects on the lived experience of the city. it’d be interesting to think about how ghost signs work in contrast.

  2. Thanks for the tip! You know, Sao Paolo has gotten rid of its outdoor advertising. To me, it’s all so much visual pollution but, when it’s old, barely there, and definitely not current, it provides a fascinating glimpse into a community’s past [plus, some great lettering!].
