Street Signs of All Kinds in London
Review of Alistair Hall's book, 'London Street Signs: A visual history of London’s street nameplates'.
It is surprising that this book hasn’t been written before, but we’re lucky that Alistair Hall noticed this and took corrective action. While the subject of London’s street signs may seems banal, it is actually riddled with fascinating stories, themes, and learning that can be taken from them. And that’s before the visual stimulation they provide when considered en masse, as Hall does in this new book, London Street Signs: A visual history of London’s street nameplates.
