    Aims and Scope

    Lettering on buildings and in the public realm affects our environment. The core of this manual is formed by archigraphy projects that represent a strategy of how architecture can be enriched by graphic elements. The structural, material or visual methods can thus be used as inspiration for the reader’s own designs. A compilation of lettering techniques, advice on project management, make this manual a tool for architects and graphic designers.
