[UPDATED: SOLD OUT]

These masterfully rendered typographical medical prints were the creation of designer, doctor and future cardiologist, Stephen Gaeta.  Stephen originated the popular diploma heart posted back in March 2011—so popular that the surge in traffic almost crashed Street Anatomy!

We’ve had the honor to team up with Stephen to bring you this series of typographical medical prints, Beat Poetry, Extra Ocular, Reactant, and Transgenic. 

  • Created with text from classic medical literature pertaining to each subject
  • On eco-friendly thick matte stock
