From billboards on roadsides to festooned vehicles, colourful walls and idiosyncratic shop fronts, vibrant signs abound throughout Africa, designed to lure in trade or simply catch the eye of passers-by. Hairdressers, restaurants, garages, butchers, tailors many a shop has begun with a prominent ad on a sign and gone on to great things. This book captures this unique slice of African culture, which is gradually being subsumed by the digitization of Africa. It is a quirky and lovingly compiled tribute to the many artists who, by dint of a simple brush and tin of paint, bring colour and vibrancy into their villages and towns.
