A picture says a thousand words quite literally in this impressive poster. This map details the streets and highways, parks, neighborhoods, coastlines, and physical features of London using nothing but type. The work encompasses destinations such as Hyde Park and the Tower of London, and the River Thames runs through the center of the map in words and letters. Every single piece of type was manually placed, a process that took hundreds of hours to complete. This full-color digital print is ideal for anyone who appreciates the art of the written word.
Unframed. Everything in this print was created manually in Adobe Illustrator, from entering names over an OpenStreetMap image, to nudging text along curved paths to depict flowing water, to selectively erasing text to create a woven street pattern.
