Sanborn Fire Insurance Map Typography

Simply incredible hand illustrated typography from 1880 to 1920, as beautiful today as it was back then.

The boyfriend and I are heading out to buy some invisible grid notebooks so we can attempt some hand-illustrated type. Pretty excited! #make something every day

Amazing typographic graphic design by American designer Luke Williams. Really liking his work, big emphasis on typography and hand lettering, which I really admire. Something I don’t have the skills to do in my own work unfortunately!

Especially loving the ‘Design takes root’ image, great idea and really well done. Looks awesome!
