Tourist Type: A Collection of Roadside Attraction Typography
This pocket-sized book catalogs type from both active and defunct roadside attractions in the continental United States. Designer Dustin Williams hopes that this volume can help preserve an early era of the American entertainment industry—roadside attractions—even as those tourist touchstones continue to vanish year by year.
Includes an index and map that geographically locate the catalogued type. Locate the existing signs before they vanish, or create your own typographic tour!
