I was lucky to meet Spanish calligrapher Juan Quiros in Valencia, and talk about freelancing, his life as a calligrapher, and the rich assortment of letters he sees on walks around the city. The picture shows us having tea in the Colon Market.
Joan and several like-minded friends have opened my eyes to all the other letters I can see if I manage to come back some day.
On Facebook, David Quay has the eye of a genius for beautiful and interesting Spanish letters. I wish I'd seen this letter-artist's stream of wonderful photos. Evidently I just scratched the surface of the riches offered by signage in Valencia and Barcelona. Next time!
Interested calligraphers can friend them on Facebook and follow their urban letters.
