Field Guide

For this project I was supposed to create a field guide of any specimens using only typographic elements to create illustrations. The type could not be cut or stretched, or changed in any way.

The subject of my field guide was Poisonous Plants and I chose different typefaces for each specimen depending what the plant looked like. For example, for the Lily of the Valley illustration I used rounded typeface, when for the Stinging Nettle I found a typrface with sharp edges.
As a background for my plants I used a bottle outline to make it look like an old poison bottle.

I hope that people would find this field guide not only beautiful and fun to look at, but also interesting and educational.
