Walking around New York City you will start noticing the same phrase posted over and over again on construction sites, “Post no Bills”. This statement comes from an era before electronic communications, and one way to advertise, was to “post” or put up on buildings “bills” or advertisements. “Post no Bills” meant please don’t clutter up this space with your advertisements. Also many cities’ laws forbid the posting of handbills, or any type of signs on public property.

The thing about the “Post no Bills” signs in New York City, is they are all different and have become an art form in themselves.
