Metro sign Paris

Signs serve a variety of functions in our society. From industrial safety signs that provide instruction to the directional signs that we rely on to get us around a new city, signs make an appearance in a number of our lives every day. Even with all the signs that flash before us on a regular basis, some really stand out. This Metropolitain sign in Paris is one of those signs. Sure, it serves a practical purpose – but it has unique character and artistry. This photo was shot for www.francehousehunt.com in the winter of 2005. The photographer was not identified. The lettering on the sign is highly stylized in a Art Deco theme that beautifully compliments the decorative ironwork that holds the sign.
