Clever, Lovely Typographic Maps

Axis Maps has release a new mapping/art project called Typographic Maps.

Created as a labor of love, these unique maps accurately depict the streets and highways, parks, neighborhoods, coastlines, and physical features of the city using nothing but type. Only by manually weaving together thousands upon thousands of carefully placed words does the full picture of the city emerge. Every single piece of type was manually placed, a process that took hundreds of hours to complete for each map.

Available now for San Francisco, Chicago, and Boston. New York and Washington, D.C. coming soon. Absolutely lovely. Get the full scoop via Axis Maps.
