Mapping the Fonts of London
London Typographica aims to photographically record publicly available lettering and type throughout London.
The London Typographica iPhone app allows users to take pictures of fonts that they find out on the streets of London and post them to a Google Map. The map itself is a wonderful guide to the fonts used in street signs, on shop-fronts and in graffiti around the capital city.
If you click on a map marker on the map the submitted photograph of a found font appears in the map sidebar.
