Luxe Lettering

I love gathering inspiration for design projects and other odds and ends on Pinterest , in magazines, on name it. But there's absolutely no denying the fact that sometimes the best inspiration comes from the past. In this case, waaaay back when. The gorgeous insurance maps  from the Sanborn Map Company came complete with some of the most exceptionally detailed lettering I've ever seen. And they were created over 100 years ago! I am just in awe. I really need to create something like this soon...
