Debossed concrete type on the Bar des Touristes

Superb debossed cast concrete type on the facade of this microscopic disaffected bar. 1950's I would estimate but with a distinctly art deco feel - short top bar on the E and geometric B, R & S. Thiviers 24.

Joe mobile review - full article

Original car park facade sign

Great facade 'accident' on the Cours Victor Hugo car park building in Bordeaux. The racing green Jaguar Mark II hangs precariously balanced in space over the street. No need for a big blue P here.

Blue and white mosaic tile typography

Superb typography and facia signage in Bordeaux. The combination of the mosaic tile sans serif caps in blue on white with the cursive script in white on dark field is excellent. The metro style tiling adds to the art deco feel.
