You know the tired cliche about a picture being worth a thousand words? Well Spanish architect and designer Juan Osborne has taken this phrase quite literally, creating works of art using words and feeding them into a custom computer program he developed which can process hundreds of thousands of words into complex images of people and places.

If you really want to dissect his work, Juan has graciously uploaded hi-res images of all his art on his website. I strongly encourage you visit to get a sense of the detail involved in these pieces. Below is a small collection of Juan’s wonderful word art. Enjoy!
