This print by Robert Cottingham shows his enduring interest in the energy and structure of letters. Cottingham isolates signs or fragments of signs from movie theaters, shops, and commercial buildings. His cropped composition and realistic rendering emphasizes the physical weight of the lettering as much as the words themselves.
