Book of memories

While browsing in the Metropolis bookstore today I came across a new book called Characters.

It a loving look at typography and signage in Melbourne by Stephen Banham of local design studio Letterbox.

Flipping through the pages brought back so many evocative memories.

Like this one of the signage at legendary eatery Pellegrini's.

I'll never forget going there for a hearty minestrone with a girl I'd met at a party.

That girl is now my wife by the way.

If you're a Melburnian I think you'll find plenty of memories within the pages of this wonderful book.

I know I did!
