Maker Story

To the letter

When you think of your favorite places, you can’t help but smile. The same thing happens when you see locations near and dear to you brought to life in a one-of-a-kind way on typographic maps by graphic designer James McDonald.

In celebration of the unique landmarks and details that make different cities, boroughs, and towns special, James draws every aspect of his maps by hand right down to each individual letter—not a single typeface is used; every word is custom-designed. The result is more than a map. It’s a typographical tribute and work of art. James' background as a graffiti artist in his youth, work as a graphic designer, and his passion for travel are evident in each piece he creates.

James uses high-end paper and ink on an ink-jet plotter in order to transform his hand-drawn creations into gallery-quality giclee prints in sizes that are easy to frame and affordable enough for all to enjoy.
