They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but these stunning artworks literally are thousands of words. An artist is creating posters of famous people that feature their own words written out in a range of characterful scripts, and they look lush.

From Audrey Hepburn and Johnny Cash to Winston Churchill and Albert Einstein, the series features a broad range of legends. And each piece features quotes from the subject, be it their lyrics, writings or dialogue from films (see our favourite poster designs for more inspiration).
