This book is dedicated to all the people I’ve met since July 11, 2009

Shopaholics’ Alphabet Book Up, down and around! Letter forms are found everywhere you look! A shopping mall is the perfect host when looking for signage! This book has been prepared to appreciate the unique form of typography and to recognize the different types of characteristics in each letter forms in the Roman alphabet. Each letter in the alphabet is examined based on retail stores from A to Z within the Polo Park Shopping Mall. Further information on the individual stores are explored. A representative of the business provided the year or the exact date the store opened within the shopping mall. Also the category under which each business falls into is stated. The concept of this book is inspired from my experience working as a Shift Manager at Bootlegger, a retail store located in Polo Park. It is titled Shopaholics’ Alphabet Book for it is dedicated to all the people I have met via working in the mall and the friends I’ve made within the company. I will always remember the first day I started and treasure the memories made over the past few years.
