The Universal Postal Union simplified the international maze of mail transport into a single postal territory. Besides the world wide agreement on mail exchange, letters themselves are of interest to these authors. Like well used luggage, letters bear the marks of their travels. This book looks at the visual traces the mail leaves as it circles the globe.

Signs : Advice and Facts

A handwritten sign is speech made visible. In speaking there is gesture, body motion, a facial expression. The effort to transfer speech to paper signs often includes underlining, circling, and boxes around words. Like snowfall, signs come and go, staying in one place for a while then disappearing. Photos are from Japan, Italy, U.S., and France. This is the 2nd book in the series about everyday stationery from the Postalco Library.
