Signs of Life

Signs and signage are an inevitable part of life. From the humble "keep off the grass" to rococo variants that confuse more than they inform. Of course, there are web sites devoted to some of the more bizarre specimens that are out there. Most of the specimens pinned down in these sites are, I assume, genuine. But now, there’s a new variant, the sign designed for a humorous or ironic metacomment. These are available in a new book published this month. One for the stocking, I think.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
