A New Typeface: BioSerif/BioGlyphs

Here microorganisms either in their natural environments, or in cluture, have been invited to interact with paper containing printed text in the form of  words, prose or poems. In the images above, and at 100-times magnification,  their interactions become apparent, as the infusoria have inflitrated the paper and text. In doing so, these minute life forms add their own inimitable character to the writings, decorating the letters with beautful but usually invisible designs. I also like the way that the letters impose a sense of size upon the microorganisms.
