Though you might not have guessed from the photo above, this post leads to over 4,000 vintage Viennese storefront facades by Herbe Marker. If typeface and font in retail design and point-of-purchase advertising are your thing, you will enjoy this comprehensive compendium of Signage. And I am relieved to finally find someone more Obsessive Compulsive in their coverage of a topic than I am here at FixturesCloseUp. My path to this resource traveled through Fascination for Shop Windows and Swiss Miss leading ultimately to Herbe Marker.
