Just came across two sets of alphabets created using Google Maps. The first was made by an Australian graphic designer Rhett Dashwood, and only uses maps from the state of Victoria, Australia. The other one was made by Rachel Young, a British researcher, who was inspired by Rhett to make one of the New York state.
See full alphabets after the cut.
Alphabet by Rhett Dashwood.
These alphabets remind me of the urban alphabet called “Type in the Sky”, by Lisa Reinermann, made while she was studying in Barcelona.
