Vintage Houdini Posters

Caught this excellent post by the good folks over at Beautiful Decay that featured some rather unusual pieces that you don't see everyday.  They posted some really nice old school posters based on houdinis from the late 1800s in line with a current gallery exhibition going on over at the Skirball Cultural Center (which I should probably go to).  Some of them are odd, yes, but I am really liking the different ways the word "houdini" is created in these with outlines, serifs, curves, italics, and kerning.
