From time to time we like to remind everyone (or anyone who’ll listen) that New York is the epicenter of the universe.
Today, photographer Alicia Peck backs us up with the introduction of Urban Alphabet, an art project/pictorial mission inspired by her combined love of typography and iconography.
Peck scoured the city for signs with geographical names and photographed logos, license plates, and lettering from America to Zanzibar. She transformed the 26 pictures into twelve-by-twelve industrial plastic tiles, and they’re all set to decorate your urban digs.
Choose from Dallas (as in BBQ) or Jackson Hole (as in burgers), or go international with The Paris Commune. Peck found London on Madison, Korea on Carmine, and San Francisco on Bleecker.
You can see and order these images at BellaMuse, the online store where Peck sells her stationery, tees, and prints. Hang them without framing, and visit Madrid, Tibet, and Windsor from the love seat in your Chelsea apartment.
See? The writing’s on the wall: And you’re smack dab in the middle of it.
