Memphis Type began as two artists’ obsession with the typography and colors of Memphis. For painter Rebecca Phillips, capturing these historic signs in her vintage, illustrated was a way to preserve the history of our city.
To take the project even further, we collected your recollections and researched the rumor and lore behind these signs for a new book based on Rebecca's unique artwork.
