Rhett Dashwood dropped me a line to tell me about his project, Google Maps Typography. Looks like Eric Tabuchi has some competition in the found letters department!
Way to steel my idea.
No really hats off to you. Great work.
That is rad. Wonder how long it took to find all of the letters? Have you seen the junk mail alphabet by Zach Gibson? http://superduper.shapesofsweetness.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/50_junk-mail-abc.jpg
Ha–that’s awesome. The second-to-last reminds me of my high school.

both are awesome, but i’ll give tabuchi more props coz of the 4 years of traveling looking for the trucks. that’s just MAD DEDICATION i tell ya!
oh and check out this one too. a japanese designer redefines the word ‘urban typography’. AWESOME. http://blog.wired.com/sterling/2009/03/urban-typograph.html
Has Google seen this? They should!
There is so much to say about the alphabet its a shame you haven’t put the actual locations of the places and where they are in the world. The Zzzzzzzzz could be better.

That’s so strange, out of any J shaped object you chose a bridge I walk over every day. I really dig this!

Is nice, but I cant see the Q
How clever! I think letter”Q” is the most difficult alphabet to find. I like this set of “type” a lot! Law
