Butterfly Type.

I love this. Designer/ illustrator Guusan has created an entire series of new butterfly species based on typography. Using various letter forms arranged into specific patterns to create the wings and body of each butterfly, Guusan has built butterflies based on Bodoni, Helvetica, Futura, Trajan, Univers, Optima, and Garamond. The butterflies are based on real species, where Guusan mimics the bodies and wings of a number of Japanese butterflies.


“I imagined different fonts as butterflies and then created a specimen book based on that.”
