Due to the huge amount of work I have this week I’m unable to do a proper post. However I have found some interesting examples of cities interpreted through type.
Penguin books have adopted this idea in a small ad campaign shown here.
Also there is a flickr set from insect54 that displays some of the work of Herbert Spencer’s “Pioneers of Type”. One book worth getting if you love type. One day I will display my own collection of design books.
Link to the set can be seen here:
