Congratulations to friend and collaborator Tony De Marco whose photographs are on the cover of the current issue of Creative Review. Tony is a font designer, publisher and artist based in Sao Paulo. The acompanying story is quite amazing. In September last year a law was passed banning all outdoor advertising in the city. As the advertising has been removed the architecture of many giant billboards has been revealed as documented in Tony’s great photographs. Sao Paulo is a city close to my heart – I believe I’ve visited 7 times now! So any news stories there are always interesting to me.
