Israeli Ironworks
7 January, 2018

These images come from both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It was astounding how many different designs there were on all these metal castings in the ground. I didn’t even photograph all the different manholes (I’ve decided to generally refer to this genre now as ‘ironworks’ to be more inclusive because not all are strictly manholes, there are other covers and grates that could fall in this category), and surprisingly I only shot a couple duplicates. Many of them are very interesting with striking graphics, unique type, and 1 – 4 scripts/languages on them.

Moar Hebrew!

This large collection of letters comes from Tel Aviv. It’s a rather random assortment of interesting things spotted while wandering around.

Some Signs from Jerusalem
2 January, 2018

We just got back from a great trip to Israel, so the next several posts will be some images from the trip.

We had the occasion to go thanks to a call Kimya received from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem. She was invited to be one of 6 Indians for to conduct a week-long workshop for the school’s “India Design Week”. Naturally, her theme was typography – her students first learned the basics of the Devanagari script then made a typographic object with bilingual Hebrew and Devanagari lettering.

I didn’t have much to do with the workshop, so I spent my time working on a new Hebrew typeface and wandering around clicking photos all over the city. Here are just a few shop signs from Jerusalem to get started.

Warsaw Jewish Cemetery
16 September, 2016

This is one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in the world, and it’s beautiful. There are so many interesting letters and headstone designs here that it’s really worth a visit. It could take hours to properly walk through, so plan accordingly.

Prague’s Jewish Cemetery
27 June, 2014

After numerous trips to Prague, I finally made it to the famous Jewish cemetery right in the middle of the city. Every other time I went to visit, it was either closed or there was a long queue to get in. I must say, I hadn’t ever seen photos from the cemetery, or done any research on it, so I was quite surprised once I finally got in. And by surprised I mean disappointed. There was a rather expensive ticket to get in (about the price of a movie), then the ‘cemetery’ isn’t a traditional one as such. It’s a short, roped-off path around a collection of headstones moved and dumped at this location. Some are extremely old (1600s), but you can really only nicely observe those nearest to the path. It was not interesting to explore like most cemeteries, it’s only a tourist trap.
