Graphic designer Twan van Keulen cut the whole alphabet out of leaves to create a leaf typography. The project is an extended experiment which started with only the a, b and c. Every leaf was cut by hand and scanned at 1200 dpi with no further processing. The leaves were chosen per letter and cut precisely so the inner and outer form stayed intact, resulting in a natural living image font with bright colors of nature. The results will be soon available as a poster print, for more information check his facebook.
