A Box on a Tree

This is a photo of a box on a tree. Completely random and the uses for such an artifact unknown: is it a garbage box to keep the garbage away from street dogs while it awaits pickup by the garbageman? Is it a very large and insecure mail box awaiting a package from FedEx? And the carefully lettered sign is true and classic Mexican typography. Note the word ‘caja‘ didn’t quite fit so it was made a little smaller at the end, but perfectly lettered in its own way.

The text says:

“Don’t do unto others what you would not have them do to you. Don’t take this box”

Because you know you want to take that box, don’t you?

  1. I love Mexican signage. They get to do all the things that my yearbook adviser wouldn’t let us do. Unreadable and or WeIRD Fonts, and not planning out the sp a cing so the words fit nicely and apparen-
    tly no rhyme or reason to their hyphenation.


  2. Your example of hyphenation was too logical, Teresita! It usually looks more lik-
    e this.
