Local Lettering: The City Reliquary
I’ve been living in north Brooklyn for about 5 years, and FINALLY stopped into the City Reliquary this weekend. It’s a weird, cool, teeny-tiny little storefront museum in Williamsburg with an awesome hand-painted sign on the front door that’s always totally intrigued me.
Inside there are all kinds of old (ranging from the antique to the recent) New York paraphernalia, which as you’d expect has all kinds of awesome typography and lettering. From old maps, to a hand-painted Newsstand, to — my favorite — early postcards with little doodles.
