Graffiti Taxonomy is a project done by fi5e, an NYC-based digital media artist and graffiti artist. Fi5e has isolatd letters from graffiti tags from around the city -- the 'A' is from tags from Harlem, while the 'S' is from tags from the Lower East Side -- and has reproduced them in similar scales in order to show the diversity of styles. If you have tags to add, send 'em to http://ni9e.com/graf_analysis.html. Fi5e's project got a shout-out in this weekend's NY Times Arts section, in a cool article about how technology and the internet are affecting graffiti.
