Gorgeous City Maps Made Entirely From Type

Axis Maps Typographic City Maps

Check out these beautiful city maps, created using nothing but type. These gorgeous prints definitely satisfy my inner font geek, and they aren't bad to look at, either. The collection of three Typographic Maps features Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago with Manhattan and Washington DC on the way.

During the printing process, each letter was manually placed, a process that took "hundreds of hours to complete for each map." The result: intricate and beautiful depictions of each featured city. Poster-size prints of each map are available for $30.
