Display typography: text and image, overlays and fills

I’ve been spending some time looking at some typography annuals, inspired by Aga Naplocha’s fantastic talk at Finch Front-End in Edinburgh, Scotland earlier this week. She was showing some fantastic design ideas based on different artistic styles and periods. One of the things that really struck me was how she was combining CSS shapes, masks, clips, and blend modes in such creative ways. I thought it might be interesting to try a couple of those ideas and see what we might be able to do with type.
