manhattan-map

This is Michael Albert’s map of Manhattan made entirely out of letters taken from advertisements and commercial products. The whole collage was completed in Fall 2008 and it measures a whopping 32″x40″. By using these letters, Michael Albert spells out the locations of places and districts in Manhattan. The artist says that there is a spelling mistake in the map and challenges people to look for it.

Check out a PDF of the map here. I would love a huge print of this to hang on my wall. :)
