A load of old bull

Crumbly typography in Migas bull ring

 

Away from the little Britain of Costa del Sol, is a tiny white town called Migas. Overlooking a cliff is the old bull ring – lovingly maintained, just crumbly enough, it’s full of typographic treasures.

 

These are the cheap seats – 40 degrees upwards in summer, not a bit of shade.
Some kerning katastrophies and beautifully irregular numbers.

 

Old plastic letters melting in the midday sun back stage. These signs represent famous bullfights from days gone by. 1995 was a bad year for heat-proof plastic lettering.

 

Old plastic crumbling away to create a font that most Goth bands would die for.
