Some of our reader's reviews

“Ms. Howard's take on the much-maligned Mexican letterscape is incisive, insightful, and extraordinarily well-written, as well as being chuck full of eye candy.  Additionally, if you ever have a chance to see one of Lorena's excellent lecture on the topic, do seek her out—it'll change the way you look at signage in general.”  
 ­—Ian Lynam

“Fresh, inventive, and exciting. A folksy, yet highly sophisticated, dive into the world of graphic design and language.”
     —Ben Deyo
