Essays by Lewis Blackwell and Lorraine Wild

Letters on American is both a graphic artwork in it’s presentation, and a typology of type. Collections of Fella’s Polaroid photographs arranged in grid format present the writing we see everywhere, everyday. From hand-painted shop signs, felt tip notes, text cast in metal to graffiti carved in a tree. There is a feeling of genuine appreciation in Edward Fella’s work, as opposed to a wry irony. In the essay ‘Off The Road’ by Lewis Blackwell, the author writes; “He [Ed] looks with fascination at the adjacent general store, which sports a window full of signs. He says: ‘You see, they’re everywhere, it’s a very American kind of clutter’”
