Lettering in Korea
Anyone who knows me knows how much I like graphical display of language. Some people call that “typography”.
I’ve been in Korea for the past few months, and I’m leaving tomorrow, at least for a little while. Before I go I thought I’d share a few of my favourite instances of lettering I’ve seen around Seoul and Busan. Some of these I liked for what they say, or how they look, or just because they’re representative of hangul calligraphy. Of course most of this is hanzi. A couple of these photos are from friends. Most are from my phone.
I’m not going to transcribe this here but if there are questions about specific ones leave a comment and I’ll let you know what it says or where it’s from, whichever.
