Singhala Signage & Lorry Delirium

This project had been completed during my Sri Lankan vacation, in January 2002. It is a photographic study of hand-painted lettering (and whimsical woodcarving) that adorns the old Sri Lankan lorries.

The styles of lettering vary from trompe-l'oeil 3D effects to fantastic majuscules and illuminated letters, from fanciful rococo to americana.

250 slides, depicting 100+ lorries (in 80+ unique styles) have been selected for publication.
Interested parties with offers of book deals (as well as delighted perusers) are kindly encouraged to me.
