Signs of France

Photographs by Steven Rothfeld

Text by André Aciman

The signs of France are a gateway into a country proud of its artistic heritage—a past that reveals itself in every nuance of daily life.

Steven Rothfeld has been recording these images for decades, capturing the milky cornflower blues and faded yellows, the hand-lettered, the neatly printed, even signs made from blown glass and wooden carvings. Their uniqueness and the beauty and sensibility of these signs reflect the visual sense of identity that is France. Rothfeld's gallery is accompanied by acclaimed author André Aciman's text, transporting the reader fully to another world.
