01 Dez Burnt Words
Martijn in't Veld
This is a story entirely written in burnt matches. The longer the word, the longer the match. It is a story about big and small fires, love, death, intrigue and plenty of blisters.
The odd typeface in which it was encoded was developed by Martijn in’t Veld and Johannes Lang through OpenType code whose ligature feature looks for the length of the typed word and replaces it with one of up to ten matches of the respective word length. Besides dozens of burnt matches—long, short, scorched or badly burnt—the character set includes two lighters and some extra long safety matches.
Happy reading. Don’t burn your fingers.
