Beautiful handpainted transport signs from Kolkata and south Bengal

South Indian indie publishing house Blaft Publications has tweeted a magnificent thread of hand-painted transportation signs from Kolkata and all around South Bengal, from taxi-door logos to bus-signs to danger signs to "for hire" signs.

They're a riot of gorgeous typography and design, creative and individual and intensely evocative of the places they came from. As sf author Mimi Mondal wrote: This entire thread is making me homesick! That 'Garia station' bus goes by my stop. 😭."
