I’m thinking about changing my instagram name to #donuts

Hand drawn typeface + Image transfer
With the constant replacement of the old with new, new buildings are increasingly looking alike. What give us an identity and our roots are these old charming places that are built by our forefathers. The concept of this typeface is literally inspired from the quote ‘Historic places give us roots’, and hence for each letter, shiny new buildings appears above the ground, while elements of the old architecture are buried underground.
The splendor of Strahov Library
I am typing this while looking at the building where these images were taken: the library of Strahov Abbey, towering high above Prague. While the monastery was established in 1143, the library dates from 1720. It is one of the most impressive I have visited: thousands of books placed in what looks more like a museum than a library. I hope you get a sense of the atmosphere from these images.
