Work has begun on a new addition to our NYC Rollsign Collection. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while now… and today, I finally got the chance to start the design process.
The rollsign that I’m working on was used in New York City subways during the early 1900′s. So, rather than using a typeface that looks similar to the original… I prefer to reconstruct the original lettering. It’s a painstaking process, but in my opinion… it’s the only way to capture the authentic look of these signs.
Once completed, this will be a 20″ x 40″ canvas print featuring 8 stops throughout the boroughs of NYC.
