A picture says a thousand words quite literally in this impressive poster. This map details the streets and highways, parks, neighborhoods, and physical features of Washington DC using nothing but type. It shows historical landmarks, including the White House, National Mall, and Capitol Complex, as well as DC's famous traffic circles and large waterways. Every single piece of type was manually placed, a process that took hundreds of hours to complete. Eye-catching waterways, like the Potomac and Anacostia, are depicted as white text flowing on a dark blue background.

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.
