Alphabet Cities

Treating solids as a kind of typography, French artist Armelle Carnon created a series of poster-style flat wall prints that seek order in the chaotic spirals, winding alleys and misshapen squares of famous cities. A strange and unique, but surprisingly alphabet-like, result emerges.

There are many ways to represent a map, a country, a city, or a town. Typography is a very common way of doing it, I forget the artist or various artists that have broken up neighborhoods within cities with type.

Armelle’s version doesn’t do that, but instead converts each part of the city into what I would call dingbats. Holy time consumption!

Interesting. Thoughts?
