Singapore Gothic celebrates the pre-digital typographic textures and flavours gracing the signages of Singapore’s streets. Hand-made with love by generations of artisans, the authors hope readers will delight in these offerings, patiently gathered and presented by Mark De Winne & Vikas Kailankaje as part of the Singapore Gothic project — a repository of vernacular shopfront signage across Singapore.
