Throwback Thursday: hand lettering on glass

This was published on December 1, 2011:
How can you walk by these doors and not do a complete double take? Anyone who has ever attempted to write in this style, standing up, knows how hard it is. I have so much respect for this ‘freestyle’ typography. I think it’s absolutely beautiful.

The picture taken in Charleston was on a ‘risky’ part of town. I find it interesting that the dangerous parts of town somehow manage to produce the most beautiful type treatments. Our road trip to NYC last weekend led us to this random rest stop somewhere in Pennsylvania. I love that someone took the time to hand render Hi. It’s the little things, ya know?
