Lisbon has beautiful examples of typography all around the city, and it’s been a long time overdue project of mine to try to capture some of them.
So the other day I decided it was time, and started to post them on Flickr.
You can check them out in here.
This particular photo is from a library, that belongs to a national newspaper called “Diário de Notícias”. The newspaper was founded in 1864, so probably this lettering has more than 100 years.
[Update 2008.11.02] Sufragista showed me what it seems to be a good article about Lisbon Typography on Eye Magazine in 2005(!!). You can take a peek on City of Sound
