Bali: jungle of signs

Front Cover
BIS, 2005 - Design - 224 pages
Today's most intriguing and evocative imagery is to be found all around us, particularly on the street. In Bali, for example, the streets act as a canvas for a unique culture of images that include hand-painted advertisements, lettering and many other graphic mediums of expression. So powerful is the creativity displayed on Balinese Streets that during a recent working visit to the island, Swiss artist and graphic designer Donald Neuburger, decided to dedicate a book to it. Bali: A jungle of Signs captivates the enormous wealth of images and unique typography that exist on Bali's city streets, especially the hand-crafted letters with their splendid cast shadows and intricate serifs. More art than advertisement these beautifully executed works provide a different perspective of the native culture of this Indonesian island popular with Western tourists and pay homage to its craftsmen.
