Mushroom type

Using the mushrooms natural reproduction method I decided to try and create a typeface. I first cut out a stencil of the alphabet in both upper and lower case and then also cut out the words 'Hortus, Sylva, Silva' the latin translation for the word garden. I then lay mushrooms over the stencil and left them for a day. The outcome was pretty incredible and worked really well. I made a poster to show the results.

(The lines across the text are from InDesign being gay.)
