Rubén Montero and his literary-inspired, glitchy typographic work

As part of a self-initiated project called Scanmania, Spanish graphic designer Rubén Montero has created this series of posters that resemble beautifully distorted photocopies. The largely monochrome series plays off snippets taken from books like William S. Burroughs’ Naked Lunch and Soft Machine, which stretch and blur and ripple across pages that in places verge on indecipherable. Rubén’s literary-inspired experiments with type seem to play to a larger design trend for fetishising the crude charm of pre-digital technology.
