The 51st Grammys...Long Live the Type!

A couple of the new 51st Grammy Awards (air date: February 8th) advertising pieces have jumped out at me from behind their plexi coverings on the streets of New York. They cleverly feature a singer made up of different colored typography which spells out the titles of songs which have inspired THEM. I love it! At first glance I thought it was their personal discography but the idea is that music influences music. I also love that there is a series of them (of COURSE there is!), not just the two I had seen on the street. The artists featured above are Rihanna, Thom Yorke, Lenny Kravitz and Lil' Wayne. Go Grammy!

I've been loving these Grammy posters and was thinking as I passed them several times that I must grab some online for inspiration!
