Experimental Typography

Whisper of Nature

Whisper of Nature is a font design project inspiredby botanist and photographer Anna Atkins. She wasconsidered the first person to publish a book withthe image produced by cyanotype.In this project, I want to experiment with the shapeof flowers, leaves, and plants. I placed the plantson the paper painted with sensitizer solution andexposed them under the sun. The area exposedto the sunshine turns to cyan-blue while othersites remain the same. This project is my methodto document the shape of nature and put it into agraphic design context.
