Chromeography: Metal logos and lettering

Over the last couple of years I’ve seen some wonderful chrome lettering pass across my screen from Stephen ColesChromeography site and today I thought I’d share a few of my favourites.

Stephen, who featured in 8 Faces #2 and whose book The Geometry of Type we reviewed on Type worship, has been running the blog on tumblr since 2009. The collection of letters led to an exhibition last year at Mota Italic in Berlin and with it the creation of the Chromeography logo in collaboration with Laura Serra (another 8 Faces contributor ).

The myriad of myriad of lettering and logo are collected from all over the web with some shots by Coles. Not just vintage cars either but cameras, refrigerators, typewriters, and I even spotted a gun.
