Michael Jenner (au) (il). This colorful volume takes a fresh look at the intriguing world of international street signage: figures, color-coded geometries, & those tense verbal instructions: STOP, WRONG WAY, DANGER, NO OUTLET. Jennerís designs invert & repeat details from street signage to create a bewildering world of conflicting information that has a powerful visual impact. Anonymous figures take on an almost heroic aspect, mimicking Egyptian hieroglyphics or ancient Greek friezes; lines & arrows form compelling patterns; monosyllabic commands acquire a verbal opacity laced with mystery & menace. This book is full of stimulating ideas for graphic designers & contemporary artists as well as for a wider public with an increasingly keen visual awareness.
