Typography in Mexico

by Nathanael

retratoenlapiz Last month, I took a three week trip to Mexico, where I stayed in Cholula San Pedro, Puebla for most of the trip. We also drove down to Puerto Escondido, a 12-hour drive through a single windy road through the mountain range of southern Mexico. AMAZING. However, I also loved the intricately painted or carved signage–everywhere. Printed signage was practically nowhere to be found in the smaller towns (like Cholula San Pedro, Puebla and Puerto Escondido on the south coast). It was the typographer’s heaven.

(Oh, and I’d love for someone to explain to me what “Technical Innovative Socks” are–see last photo)
