So, you know the LED displays on city buses that show their routes through town? Back in the day, those route displays were more low-tech: In London, buses were equipped with signs printed on scrolls of cloth; drivers would simply turn a crank to advance the sign to show the next destination. Now, those calico strips have been turned into gorgeous typographical fabrics, which you can purchase by the yard (or buy custom furniture) to create pillows, slipcovers and more. We love the simple, graphic style. Available from British Route Sign Designs and at a select group of home decor retailers.
