It’s always great when people I know work together. My friends over at GOOD Magazine asked the extremely talented Micah Lidberg to create an illustration around the how neighborhoods around the U.S. got their names. So he created a map and covered it with hand drawn type, the end result being the amazing image you see above. I love how many different type faces he created, each one more beautiful then the next.

What’s funny is the whole issue, which was art directed by Keith Scharwath, is filled with great illustrators like Scott Barry, Chris Johanson, Erin Kunkel, Leif Parsons, Will Etling and ton of other folks, so I suggest grabbing yourself a copy.
