The theme I chose for this year's 36 Days of Type was Medicinal and Botanical plants. This was inspired not only by my personal love for nature, natural forms and colours but also a dedication to the beautiful natural world that gives us so much more than we know. 
I realised I was unaware about so many wonderful plant species as I researched for this project. Each letter is a labour of love, and contains forms of four medicinal plants/trees/flowers/herbs each. I was able to do only the 26 letters, but will definitely work on the numbers soon. I hope you are able to experience, live and breathe this project as I did.
