They say that the font you choose says a lot about you, but this brilliant series of posters makes us worry slightly.

Entitled "Typocalypse", this fantastic collection by Dutch-based graphic designer Lars Willem Veldkamp boldly states, in no uncertain terms, what subliminal messages fonts are actually trying to feed you.

The full set of 40 is available to view here - we've chosen our favourite 20.

We quite liked Arial until we saw this :-(
