Artist has begun the painstaking task of redesigning New York’s most loved transport link with intricate typefaces.

Designer and author Cameron Moll has created an illustration of the Brooklyn Bridge by placing thousands of individual letters in strategic spots.

Moll’s typeface illustration consists of fonts inspired by the bridge’s history. He constructed a huge amount of research including several trips to the bridge for photography and filming, a thorough reading of David McCulloch’s ‘The Great Bridge’ and a long search for typefaces that were designed or in use during its construction from 1869 to 1883. Molls finally chose a particular photo which allowed him ‘to capture the entire bridge while showing the beautiful details of the stone, wire, and Gothic arches.’
