In an old handbook on bonsai—the Japanese art of dwarfed potted trees—I noticed the type was bad. Old worn lead type, I suspect, spread wide at the tops of characters and nearly disappearing at the bottoms. But far from being a distraction, I found this top-heavy text somehow warm, familiar, and easy on the eyes. Inspired, I made a typeface. (Didn’t take me long to decide on a name for it either: a name with a double-meaning, based both on its look and its inspiration.) Bonsai’s roman and true italic styles work well at small point sizes or in display situations. Use to evoke a curiously retro feel—like déjà vu.

Bonsai has more than 800 glyphs, true small capitals, old-style and lining figures, numerous ligatures, and full Latin language support.

Package includes:

  • Roman and italic desktop fonts in OTF and TTF formats
  • Roman and italic webfonts in EOT, WOFF, TTF, and SVG formats
  • PDF guide to OpenType features
  • PDF desktop and webfonts EULAs
  • ReadMe text file
