This exhaustive documentation of the signage of Barcelona could convince even the non-designer to catch the next flight to Spain. Beautifully photographed and organized, it covers all aspects of urban facade embellishment—from door numbers to mosaics to hand-painted signs. I never tire of looking at this book, and turn to it often when I am seeking reference or general inspiration.
