Fonts in use in Aix-en-Provence

Post by William » Mon Sep 27, 2010 8:15 am

An exhibition named Cézanne’s Card Players is due to be held at the Courtauld Gallery in London from 21 October 2010 – 16 January 2011.

This caused me to look up Paul Cézanne on the internet. I learned of his connection with Aix-en-Provence.

This was the inspiration for a virtual visit to Aix-en-Provence using Google Streetview.

Here is a shop sign.

There is a web address on the sign. Expressed as a copy from the browser, the address is as follows.

http://www.carolinelaurent.com/

The Translation Plus 10.0 program translates the name "Immobilier de Caractère" as "Real estate of Character".

Turning to the left, and zooming-in, there is the sign "Chat Rêveur", which Translation Plus 10.0 translates as "Dreamer Cat".

There is another view of "Chat Rêveur" as follows.

Rotating vertically down to a horizontal view and then moving to the right, there is "Plein le Dos" which Translation Plus 10.0 translates as "Enough". Separately, "Plein" is translated as "Full" and "le Dos" as "the Back".
