Designers Nicolas Damiens and Julien Sens have taken on the tedious task of converting Kurt Cobain‘s, David Bowie‘s, John Lennon‘s, and Leonard Cohen‘s handwriting into ready-to-use fonts. The two have done their best to capture the nuances of their handwritings, using samples from personal notes, letters, postcards, lists, and even Kurt Cobain’s suicide letter. In regards to Cobain’s writing, the designers have described it as fearless and poetic where he didn’t hesitate to bold or scratch out words.

Take a look at the samples and fonts in the photos above, or download them here. In other design news, Japan is getting an Ace Hotel.
