These Portraits bring a whole new meaning to the word typeface.  Designers have explored their artistic side by using type to create portraits. Using type as a way of creating art is a good exercise to build up your understanding of the anatomy of type.  It allows you to pay attention to line way and the bends and curves of certain letter forms and fonts.  It is also allows you to think outside of the box and use type to create 3D forms.  Type does not always have to be admired for its readability but can be considered a piece of art work on its own.  So try creating a self-portrait of your own and use type in a whole new way.
