Customizable Geometric Glyphs: Trivium Custom Book Font

Anne Burdick designed Trivium, a custom font, for Marshall McLuhan's book "The Classical Trivium: the place of Thomas Nashe in the learning of his time." The type glyph colors can be changed and the designs layered to create new forms.

I like how the change in colors and opacity can make the glyphs take on very different personalities.
