Typography for Travelers

Axis Maps has announced the release of their mapping/art project “Typographic Maps”. These unique maps use nothing but type to depict roads, highways, neighborhoods, parks and physical features of cities like Boston, San Francisco, Chicago and New York.

They manually weave together thousands of names, words and titles to create a complete picture (and usable map) a process that takes thousands of hours. You can learn more about how it’s done on the Axis blog.
