Here’s another rare gem that I managed to find. Signet Signal Symbol, by Walter J. Diethelm and published in 1984, is a book displaying commercial and cultural signs, symbols, logos and icons. What makes this book very unique are the three translucent pages featuring actual design sketches from the designers. An excellent insight into the process and evolution of the designs. Book itself is pretty rare but it makes an great inspirational tool for I need to sign logos and icons.

I find them on ebay, bookfinder.com, abebooks.com and amazon.com.
Lovely stuff 🙂
I clearly remember those tags in the bottom pictures from childhood, they’re car tags belonging to old FIAT cars. Wow it seems a looooooooong time ago!
Very nice. I love stuff like that.
Antonio, have you seen this site? http://highvalleybooks.com/
It is filled with books and old magazines that will blow your mind, and your budget. Check out the old issues of Habitat, absolutely beautiful.
I bought this book at a used store bargain stack for 10 bucks about 3 years ago. It’s the best symbol design book in my collection. Wonderful resource.
I bought this book for a buck yesterday! Ha!
