Love Story Posters

Graphic designer Patrick King, came up with this cool idea to design posters to tell love stories. Each poster tells a love story from its beginning through falling in love, expressing its passion, the appearance of trouble, the breakup and its aftermath. Told entirely via song titles from the 1980s: http://is.gd/Ee4UiF 1970s: http://is.gd/mASULT and 1960s: http://is.gd/K79Gnh woven into intricate typographic word puzzles.
