Remember The Wire? It was that hugely successful HBO show that everyone was going on about before Breaking Bad rolled into town - a brutal, gripping crime drama about Baltimore's seedier side.

Oliver Munday certainly remembers The Wire. The graphic artist is so enamoured with the show that he's set about making The Wire Poster Project - a set of 60 typographic posters, one for each of the 60 different epigrams that proceeded every episode.

Each of the posters is available top purchase as an 18 by 24 inch print - they're well worth browsing just for nostalgia's sake. You can view all of Munday's work here.
