The above Typographic reminds me of the work of a friend from college, Mark Webber.

In 2006 he created the first of his ‘Where in the World' maps that have rapidly become his trademark – recreating the famous aerial outline of solely from the typographic representation of the Boroughs, before painstakingly carving the design into a large sheet of linoleum.

Mark's map gained him immediate international recognition and soon after he was asked to create a map based on London for the ‘My City, My London' exhibition alongside such luminaries as Alan Fletcher, Margaret Calvert, Ken Garland, and Derek Birdsall. This was swiftly followed by a commission for the front of Crafts magazine, and subsequently in 2007 Mark was awarded a Silver Cube from the Art Directors Club of New York – one of the most prestigious awards in graphic design.
