Urban Typography

Axis Maps produced a gorgeous series of typographic maps illustrating geography through typography. The works appear as a typical maps viewed from afar, but close-up details reveal only words comprising the landscape. As described by the creators:

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 by type. Only by manually weaving together thousands upon thousands of carefully placed words does the full picture of the city emerge.
