A picture may be worth 1,000 words, but words can be just as lovely, unique, and eye-catching. Typographic art isn’t anything new, but it’s been getting incredibly popular lately. Pretty posters with typography have been popping up everywhere—most of these posters are for art’s sake, but some of them are being used as exciting marketing tools.

These typography-based posters are gaining ground, but not all of them are works of art. Some of these are outstanding, however, and these are 10 creative typography-based posters that make great examples and awesome inspiration if you have been considering poster printing for yourself.
