    Permanent display on the wall of the Bulgarian embassy in Vienna, Austria, advertising sunny Bulgaria as holiday destination. The tightly spaced caps are modeled after Revue, using J for an initial I, as it was common in sign painting and making in German-speaking countries. The descending N was included in Letraset’s original version as an alternate.

    The ad was probably was installed around 1984, after the building was completed. The photo was taken by Frank Grießhammer in 2007. The location was kindly tracked down by Johannes Lang. By 2017, the sign was gone, as documented by Google Street View.
