Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Über drei Jahre sind Fotografen für "Colors Magazine" durch die Welt gezogen, um Hinweisschilder zu fotografieren. Die besten davon haben wir in "1000 Signs" zusammengestellt. Was dabei herausgekommen ist, ist ethnologisch und sozio-kulturell hochinteressant: was ist wo verboten und wie wird das vermittelt? Viele Verbote und Hinweise sind global oft dieselben, werden aber in der Gestaltung unterschiedlich interpretiert und verraten damit ungemein viel über die kulturellen und gesellschaftlichen Gegebenheiten eines Kulturkreises. Der Begleittext beleuchtet die Bedeutung dieses Vergleichs.

Synopsis:

This book features an amusing collection of signs from around the world. Divided into chapters by type (animals, men, stop, danger, weapons, transport, children, toilets, work, ""no!,"" etc.), the signs demonstrate how different cultures portray the icons with which we are all so familiar. The diverse selection of photographs is accompanied by texts describing the cultural and social significance of signs. You may even learn things from this book that could save your life the next time you travel!

Synopsis:

Made in co-operation with Colors magazine, this book features an amusing collection of signs from around the world. The colourful photographs are accompanied by texts describing the signs as well as their meanings and origins.
