There are some cool effects on the text, however I wouldn’t call these typographic posters. This is more letter art than typography. Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but effects generally aren’t welcome in the field of typography. It’s more of a dedication to the beauty and discipline of letter forms as they are. I would put these more under graphic art than type related. I would say #14 is the closest to typographic. Although there are reflections and such, you get a nice close up of the main bodies of the letters where you can see the serif details… Read more »
