Signspotting in CopenhagenFriday, 12 June 2009
En route to the Faroe Islands I stopped off in Copenhagen and caught Doug Lansky’ Signspotting show. Doug has put together two Signspotting books for Lonely Planet, photographs of the weird and wonderful signs you bump into all over the world.
In Copenhagen they’re blown up to lifesize so they look just like their original context and for some reason they’re even funnier that way than in Doug’s book. Sponsored by the Scandinavian student travel organisation Kilroy they’ll be in Copenhagen until the end of the June before moving on to Arhus in Denmark, Edinburgh in Scotland for the Fringe Festival in August and then Gothenburg in Sweden.
