Jessica Hische's Vein Typography proves that just because anatomical typography is uncommon, doesn't mean it's not awesome. Hische has created three pieces here, each made entirely out of red and blue veins.

The two pieces with text are incorporate clever puns to go along with their beautiful print. The third piece is a picture of a woman and a heart drawn entirely in veins. Hische created her Vein Typography for an article about heart health in a women's magazine. Typography based on the human body is rare, but when it does appear, it's usually macabre. Letters made out of bones are nice, but sometimes low-key and creative is the better route, especially when it comes to written artwork.
