Unique Butterfly Species Created with Typography

25-year-old illustrator and graphic designer Guusan recently developed a unique set of butterflies that won’t flutter away when you approach them. The project is actually a typography series in which each winged bug is formed out of select typefaces including Bodoni, Times New Roman, and Univers.
