What kind of text.

Waiting in the bus for the Vaz Diaz bridge in the Weesperstraat I saw a text on the underside in fonts that looked a bit like hebrew ( I now know that this font is called Karim Hashem). Now is this bridge in a part of amsterdam where earlier a large part of the amsterdam jewish people have lived until the second world war. It is an experimental poem from the poeet Kristiaan Kanstadt ( normal name Cristian Maat) called "Wibautotisme". For the total poem look here and for more sunday bridges go to San Franscisco Bay Daily Photo.

  1. That's an interesting and unique way of getting a message out.

  2. Fascinating.
    A very interesting post and a welcome contribution to Sunday Bridges.

  3. Is there enough time to read the whole thing? I looked at the google translation which was, I think, not very helpful! But I like the concept...

  4. That's a great idea, a poem under a bridge. You're stopped anyway. But how many times would you have to pass by before you managed to read the whole lot (I'm suffering from the language barrier - there's just enough words popping out to m tell me it's standard letters and not something like Hebrew, which, as you say, is what it appears like to begin with)
