Copenhagen Type is a project by Rasmus Lund Mathisen grpahic and type designer from Denmark. He had the idea to collect contemporary and vintage photographs of Copenhagen. Here is a little selection of what sign painters did during the 20th century. They actually made walls speak to the customer with a great and impressive variation of type and colorful letters. We like it when history of typography, sign painting or lettering is hold to a website or a collection. This is really history speaking!
