Powązki Cemetery – Part 1

20 September, 2016

This is one of three connected cemeteries in the center of Warsaw. There is such a variety of styles and lettering techniques to be found here, it is a must see for any typophile. I have so many images from this cemetery that I’ve divided them into two posts. Be sure to also check out the Jewish cemetery and the Cmentarz Ewangelicko, they are also very interesting.
