The Story Behind Paris’ Iconic Art Nouveau Metro Entrances

quote [ Between 1900 and 1912, 141 of Guimard's entrances were installed all over Paris. Today, 86 remain—though they're often confused with other aesthetically similar types of signage. ]

Some historical references for these well-known signs.

Pretty interesting. There's one of the Entourage entrances in Chicago as well. It's gorgeous to see these life-size, but boy does it feel out of place where it's installed all by its lonesome.
