I am absolutely insane over huge theater marquee sign letters, circus signs, obnoxiously oversized store displays, etc. For a gal that is obsessed with text, letters, written notes and the like...hanging odd one-of-a-kind letters on her walls (which occasionally spell non-sensical things)...my passion only grew stronger after seeing the great lobby at the Ace Hotel in Portland. Spelled out, in old, abandoned marquee letters, "HOTEL". Simply dramtic. (Alright...the photo booth in their lobby is equally cool).
So a few years ago, after stalking eBay, I came upon a set of 20+ in the same likeness as the Ace Hotel "HOTEL". Oh, ya. Dreams do come true. Or so I thought...
But then I stumbled upon the Big "O"! Oh, ya...an understatement. At over 5' tall...and a gazillion lightbulbs...it is one electricity sucker. Needless to say, it is on the "if I won the lottery wish list".
Even without the lightbulbs...they are magnificent.
But here it is...pure fantasy. A place to go for every marquee sign imaginable (and more). Agent Gallery Chicago. All the marquee letters pictured are from Agent Gallery. I can hardly stand it. But...they do cost a pretty penny. Still...it is better than scaling a wall to get your own.
