Do you really love Paris street signs and French metal signs in general?
If you are like me and adore all of them -- not just the classic plaques émaillées with the street names, but also the house numbers, the Pietons signs, the Sens Interdit signs, well. Have I got a treat for you.
On rue des Tournelles today I came across the Gallery Art Jingle and an exhibit of a fabulous artist, Fernando Costa, now know just as Costa. If you haven't heard of him already (he is quite famous, at least in France), his medium is reclaimed metal, mostly signage.
All inspirational and on top of that, just perfect for any francophile.
To top it off, it turns out that he is also designing this year's Art Car for the 90th anniversary of the renowned Le Mans race, and the car will be unveiled tonight!
If all this creative art is too hi-falutin' for you, and if you just want some street-sign memorabilia to take back home... well, let me see. You can always, ummm, buy this men's shirt, seen shortly thereafter on rue de Turenne.
