Signs and Signings April 20, 2008

It’s safe to say that I will be very excited to get my hands on this book, Vintage Birmingham Signs, by Tim Hollis. It goes on sale this week, and he’ll be signing copies at several places around town in the coming weeks, starting with the Alabama Booksmith this Friday evening. Tim is one of the experts on the pop culture history of Birmingham and the South–he’s one of the time-turners behind Birmingham Rewound–and he has written several books already. This new one apparently covers both neon and painted signs, with many photos direct from the archives of some of the original sign companies.

I have it, and immediately thought of you when I saw it. I’ve only read a couple pages so far, but I’m very excited!
