Les Lunettes

Just look at this super opticians shop that I found in one of the grand avenues in the centre of Turin, in a listed building, and, under the most amazing porticoes! The shop sign is mirrored and very old. The typeface is fabulous. 

It's hard to believe that the owner had the courage to commission this paint job. Strangely enough it works perfectly and certainly catches the eye so to speak. This image can be seen on Flickr as part of a little collection of snapshots that I take when I am out and about in the lovely Turin!
