The aim of this project is to research, document and archive the unique vernacular language of agricultural typography on farm gates identifying properties in south-east Australia. These extraordinary three-dimensional, hand-crafted letterforms present a distinctive and enduring language from the heart of the rural Australian landscape. This study of rural heritage investigates the history and cultural significance of agricultural typography as a key component of the material fabric of everyday life in the region. The project aims to raise awareness of the unique nature of these nameplates as a significant cultural and historical resource for the community. Many property owners and managers take great pride in their property nameplates, but many signs are also rapidly disappearing. There is a real danger that without a strong visual archive of the remaining original signs, these unique vernacular examples of agricultural typography and their histories may be lost.
