Well, so are these nifty posters from graphical shop, Eakdesign. Plus, they look a hell of a lot better on your wall.
These tasty typographical treats create the acronyms of CHI or STL by cleverly stacking words of the things that make these Midwestern hubs so great. “WGN,” “Addison,” “the Cubs,” “Pizzeria Uno” – just to name a few – are real, visceral concepts that get to the heart of the place they represent, proving yet again what the Windy City is all about: local news, mediocre sports and artery-clogging nosh.
But, just like a city, these posters are made up not just by the sum of their parts, but by the parts themselves. Or we can forget all this Nabokovian mumbo-jumbo and dust off a place on the wall. That Acrostic poem celebrating “W-A-L-K-E-R T-E-X-A-S R-A-N-G-E-R” that you’ve had up for the past eight years has finally met its match (and by the way, ‘Xceptional biceps’ doesn’t really work anyway).
