baby's breath typography

this baby’s breath typeface by keziah chong is made from gypsophila, affectionately know as baby’s breath. gypsophila means to miss, to adore, and to give, and though it often serves a supporting role, it becomes the star of this typeface. it has a feeling of freshness, graciousness, and tenderness- all of which i adore.
