Wards in words

Last week I discovered a surprisingly fascinating blog called Strange Maps. Honestly, it’s riveting! It’s an eclectic and informative collection of ... you guessed it, strange maps.

One of the maps featured is a typographical guide to Chicago’s neighbourhoods (by Ork Posters) which, to someone like me who loves graphical wordy things, is stunning. So I decided – Chicago being twinned with Brum and all – to have a go at creating a typographical ward map of Birmingham, for no other reason than to see how it’d look. (Geek!)

Anyway, this is what I’ve got so far. It’s a work-in-progress and needs a few tweaks but I like how it’s coming along ...
