Czech Signwriting. I've just returned from my second visit to the city of 1000 spires and cabbage soup, Prague. I don't think I will ever tire of Prague's endlessly fascinating streets, fine gloomy Baroque churches and dusty antique shops, this September in unseasonably nippy temperatures.

These elegant examples of signwriting painted directly onto the building's stonework caught my eye. Somehow the letter style couldn't be from anywhere else but the Czech Republic.

Welcome back John. Something very appealing about signage painted directly onto a wall isn't there?
