Today’s post are two deli signs that have caught my eye for very different reasons. Coppola’s is magical balancing act where no one comes out alive. That C is the tight rope and all the letters are along for the ride. It’s only a matter of time before the o’s roll completely off. The p’s are hanging on for dear life. Literally. The l is holding his breath but has reached his tipping point. The A is workin’ the straddle but…ouch. That’s painful to just look at. Lastly, that s is one nudge away from the apostrophe taking him out. Put it all together and my anxiety is through the roof and I haven’t even walked through the doors yet. Here’s some other shots of the lettering:The red lettering at the bottom makes me laugh. Cooper Black has seen better days: Spacing after comma’s are overrated anyway. Moving on to Primo’s in Akron. My goodness, where to begin?! How about we don’t. Gotta love hand lettering and the illustrations that go along with it.
