Hidden Type

I was driving to see my parents the other day and I noticed that the old copy shop near their house went out of business. I also noticed that they had taken down the sign and clearly someone had painted around the sign. Where the sign used to be there was some type painted on the building itself.

While I didn't have my camera with me that day (bad Nick!), I made a mental note and went back a few days later and snapped some great pics of the hand painted type. Not sure what "Warrior" was there before the copy shop, but it was neat to find this gem of hidden design. Sadly, the building is scheduled to be torn down soon. I'm glad I was able to capture these images before they are gone forever.

I wonder what other kinds of great design lies underneath our current signs?
