In our last Type Around Town post, we called upon the community to photograph awesome typeface implementations from their own neighborhoods. The point of this series is to appreciate the effect of good typography in the real world — in signs, ads, books, etc. — and not just on the web.

Of course, artful typeface usage exists everywhere, not just in hipster strongholds like San Francisco and New York City. A few members of the community stepped up to prove it: check out these snapshots from Las Vegas, Nevada; Semarang, Indonesia; Timisoara, Romania; Ciudad Guzmán, Mexico; and Croatia. And … we do have a few more from the Bay Area and New York.
