London Typographica – Creating the typographic map of London
London Typographica is a project aimed at type enthusiasts in London. It is both a smartphone app and website, enabling type fans to photograph their favourite publicly accessible samples of type and lettering.
The smartphone app will upload photos to the website, and record the location automagically. Text and tags can be added to each ‘typograph’, to give it some context.
London is rich in both historic and new sources of public type and lettering. Much of it is either being replaced, or lost. Our aim is to record type as it changes.
