Description
"Something to write home about is the clever 'open' sign at Lord Beaverbrook's. The midtown restaurant wanted something special to alert customers that it's open for business despite a contingent of painters working on the building's exterior. The sign is a rebus, a puzzle combining pictures, letters and numbers to suggest words or phrases"
