You may recall artist Katie Holten’s tree typeface, written-up here a few years back. “Each letter of the Latin alphabet is assigned a drawing of a tree from the NYC Parks Department’s existing native and non-native trees,” Holten writes, “as well as species that are to be planted as a result of the changing climate. For example, A = Ash.”

That typeface is now available as a free download, so you can type your own forests into existence with abandon. All the world’s literature, translated into trees.
