Last Sunday’s post mentioned lettering and calligraphy so this video seems a logical follow-up. Professor Matt Soar, Communications professor at Concordia University, launched the Montreal Signs Project in collaboration with Archivist Emerita Nancy Marrelli. He gives us a short tour of the collection. I spent a chunk of my childhood growing up in Montréal, and have visited as an adult, so many of the old signs are familiar. (I still find it hard to imagine the city without Bens.)
Perhaps this weekend you will take a closer look at signs where you live.
