The GARDEN fonts began with a sans serif, then sprouted and grew! Inspired in part by the early Walt Whitman cover at left. Plant motifs were adapted from a variety of historic sources* and incorporated into bold, wide grotesque letters in three degrees of vegetation: Full, Two-Thirds, and One-Third. Set also includes Empty (without sprouts) for cross-pollination. (Shown in descending lines above.)
Each font includes capitals, punctuation, numbers, and international characters.
