Los Angeles Lettering Walk

I am leading a lettering walk of Downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, March 2 from 10 am to 1 pm. It will be a reprise of one that I did during TypeCon 2010. The walk will take in the usual range of urban lettering sights—carved inscriptions, metal letters, painted signs, plastic signs, vinyl signs, terrazzo letters, vernacular writing, graffiti (maybe)—but most of all we will see lots of neon signs, both active and dead.

Dancing Girls (detail) neon sign.

To register for the tour email me at paulshaw@nyc.rr.com. The cost is $25 ($15 for students). Participation is being capped at 15 people. As of February 10 the tour is sold out, but names are being taken for a waiting list.
