This is a really cool set of three staple-bound books of black and white photographs of street images containing lettering. The books have no publishing information, except for the title and this note printed around the edge of the front cover in English and in French: "little things you may have missed while on your way to work - typographic awareness series - esler's commissioned errol etienne to create & execute this series / regarder sans voir... une activité quotidienne - la collection éveil typographique."
depicted on the covers of the three books are an ampersand, a

I did find this about the artist on Wikipedia:
Errol Herbert Russel Étienne (1941 -
2011) was an artist in many media including watercolor, oil and acrylic
painting. His watercolors can be found in museums, travelling
exhibitions as well as in private collections. Much of his bright and
animated work was inspired by his time living in the Florida Keys."
