Gorgeous. I love seeing the variations on each theme.

There was a time when I thought I could be an artist. I was clever with pencil and pen. I could cartoon. I could sketch a good portrait. I was wicked with still lifes. One time, I designed a co-worker's baby announcement. I'm creative, I thought.

Um, no. Once I saw what real artists can do (thanks, DeviantArt!) for fun, I just threw down my pencil and gave up. I am astounded, as I was looking at these designs, by the visual imagination and technical skill embodied by these pieces.

Thank you for sharing this.

Some of these seem more like calligraphy than typography but they’re all very lovely just the same.
