Throughout Mexico there are announcements, signs and messages of all kinds. The majority of these messages are handmade; among these, many are exclusively text-based.
This book is about those letterings signs done by hand; by extension, it is also about the cramped and chaotic spaces where they are found.
Letterforms traced on walls and tin plates, in environments saturated with activity and exposed to the passage of time, are a singular manifestation of the ephemeral nature of the urban dynamic. They are composed in a language that is ubiquitous and easily passed by; it is impossible not to read these signs, when they come at you out from the corner of your eye, eliciting sideways glances from all who pass by.
