A display typeface that questions legibility.
The forms are inspired by gothic and calligraphic letters and the capitals emulate traditional decorative drop caps, full of unnecessary ornament that disrupts readability.
Each letter has a glyph with elongated serifs that allows the entire word to become a ligature.

Animal is a display typeface inspired by the harsh elegance of the natural world. The wildly ornate caps emulate the roar of the overly confident lion, intimidating those who dare to read it.
