double rail letter mounting signs

I love this comparison. I have had this Pittsburgh picture for about 7 years and haven’t found another picture to compare it to that I was satisfied with. I am so drawn to the way the letters are mounted and, of course, that killer ampersand. I love how the letters are sitting on the top of the building, as if they are a beautiful crown for this awesome building. My friend Calvin posted a picture he took of the famed Public Market sign while in Seattle and I immediately thought of my P & LEER picture (Thanks Calvin for letting me use this picture!). I love the way the double rail mounting system really makes each letter stand out. Such beautiful signs that are hard to come by these days.
