Psithurism Typeface Design

Psithurism (sound of wind rustling through tree leaves) is a book typeface created for small prose that would most likely be suited to magazines or small zines. This typeface was created in reference to traditional blackletter, sharpened to give it a more modern aesthetic. Psithurism also contains unique characters such as “C” and “2,” which both have leaf motifs accentuating their forms.
