American Signage

Big Bike, originally uploaded by spinneyhead.

The US trip saw the rekindling of one of my old interests- photographing old commercial signage. I have enough pictures of old factory fronts, shop signs etc. from Mancheser to make a fairly substantial coffee table book. I’m going to start work on it as my next project after finishing the comic for mobiles.

After Manchester, I’d love to do other cities. Who’d have thought Manhattan could be one of them. There are 82 of the photos of signs I took in New York State (some from Buffalo and Hudson to complement the Big Apple ones) in the American Signage set on Flickr. If anyone would like to commission me to fly back and do a properly thorough job on the city the email’s in the side column.
