Pittsburgh Signs Project

The Pittsburgh Signs Project is a great site made up of many different photographer's images around the city. There is page after page after page of so many different signs, mostly old which exemplifies the history of this area, but it is really fun to keep flipping through these images to see the typography, materials and logos that make up this city!

UPDATE: I also just found out that this project is actually made into a book, which there is a discussing and signing at the Joseph-Beth Bookstore on June 11! From their site:

The Pittsburgh Signs Project invited photographers from the 14 counties of southwestern Pennsylvania to submit images and comments and the result is Pittsburgh Signs Project: 250 Signs of Western Pennsylvania, a full-color book showcasing the signs of our region, past and present. Join the editors for a book discussion and signing at Joseph-Beth and find out more about this amazing Pittsburgh project!
The Joseph-Beth bookstore is located at 2705 E. Carson, near 27th St.
