Indian photographer Pooja Saxena documents various signs and street lettering she comes across all around her country. You can find a huge amount of photos on her website. Scroll down to see which ones we picked as the most interesting.

I am always on the lookout to document and share photographs of street lettering from India that don’t fall into the “truck art,” “oh-so-colourful” stereotype. There are so many things to see once you start looking past the obvious. #BombayArtDecoType and #GoaAzulejosType, for instance. But there are times, like yesterday and today, when some handpainted signs with dramatic colours and shadows are just what the doctor ordered 😊 #IndiaStreetLettering #TheDailyType #TheGoodType #DelhiLetteringWalk #PaharganjLetteringWalk #Latergram #TypeHunters #FoundType #Type #Lettering #InstaType #TypeNerd #TypeLove #Typography #TypographyInspired #LetteringCo #GoodType #DesignInspiration #ArtOfType #TypeGang #BFType #HandPainted #HandPaintedType #StreetLettering #DelhiILoveYou #Delhi_IGers #DelhiGram #Delhi
