Typography in fine art: 100 exciting examples you can acquire. September 19 2019

This post celebrates typography's ubiquity, thanks to man's innate need to express himself, in the world of art. We've selected a disparate collection of artworks where typography, lettering and even writing resemblances are central to the composition, as well as also including art pieces where words might only play the role of a curious bystander. 

If you're an art collector looking to purchase some of these sought after pieces your best bet would be to visit Artsy, Sotheby's, Christies, or any equally reputed gallery, like Gagosian. 

Separately if you share our passion for type, you might enjoy traipsing through our inspirational typographic art print collection, and our main site.
