When Cartography met Typography….

From the minds of digital mapmakers Axis Maps, are these wonderful typography maps of Chicago and Boston.  Every detail is made completely of type, creating a stunning visual exploration of each city, as every street, lake and park detail are correctly titled.

This is a pet project for the mapmakers, however if you live in New York, San Francisco, or Washington, DC you can expect to see versions of your cities soon!
