Preserve is on going project by Mark Spurgeonto of Australia. The goal of the project is to produce a permanent visual record of hand painted building signage in his native land. Sweet!
As Mark explains on the site, many of these signs are being erased from our cityscapes either being worn away by weather over time, covered as buildings have been repainted, disappearing as buildings are demolished or replaced with modern signage equivalents.
The Preserve site is updated regularly with Mark's latest images from New Zealand and Australia and you are invited to contribute to this work also.
Very cool, especially if you're a typography freak like I am!
