I’ve been feeling a little blue and so have looked around for things to cheer me up, two of my favorite things ? Typography and maps!! So what could be better than………. For sheer ‘happyness’ quota this Ursula Hitz print hits the spot, for sale here Seagull Hut or see her blog Seagull’s Eye. Love the Retro ‘groovy’ font.
“Ursula Hitz is interested in the ways that letters capture not only the dimensions of a place, but its personality too.”
More traditional ? …suitable for Great Britain maybe. Bold and Noble’s Uk Map in Slate.
Go to for lots more typographical eye candy.
and finally …. for now I especially like this by Mark Andrew Webber
It’s a beautiful linocut type map of Amsterdam. You can read about him and purchase some of his work here at the futuretense.
A little of my happiness quota is restored.
