Fun Typography

Again from the great site “fab.com” I found a bunch of posters, heavy with typography.  They are very interesting and have a lot of different touches to them, although they all have a similar aesthetic feel.  Its got to be a torn or old feel, kind of like they were from a long time ago.  Anyways, “The Princess Bride” poster caught my eye because I’ve never see it before and it struck me right away.  If you’ve seen the movie, then you will understand the poster right away.  I think that most of them are just a great use of typography, visually they catch the eye.  They move the viewers around the posters, looking and studying the type, as if they were pictures themselves.  Of course this is the whole point of using typography like this, but in this case I feel it is done with intention and executed very well.  Let me know which ones are your favorites, maybe the same as mine!

    I love typographic posters and I agree with the Princess Bride one. It’s new and eye-catching if you know the story. Nice post!
