First there was the architecture of Bowery, then came the typeface of Bowery, the extension of that is the dingbats of Bowery. A dingbat is not to be confused with those that are walking on Bowery to the New Museum, but “is an ornament, character or spacer used in typesetting”. There’s a lot to classify so I picked a handful that Madison and I saw on our walk this morning on our favourite walking street—Bowery. There’s the cryptic stencil sticker, the fancy liquor poster pattern, the where things get done icon (not to be confused with you’re only allowed one phone call), this is where you can plug in your radio icon, love can be found on this street icon, close box, water in case there’s fire image, the number of feet away one should stand away from sign, this way up mattress box, and the decorative cage on window image. There’s probably a couple that I missed so I’ll have to keep my eyes open tomorrow when I go back.
