In an effort to inspire a new generation of tech-savvy poets and artists, two creatives turned the handwriting of Kurt Cobain, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Serge Gainsbourg into downloadable fonts.

This offering hopes to bring more personality to online mediums of expression, and intends to aid the writer in channeling the moods of each modern artist. To develop the website, the duo gathered letters from the artists' personal notes and scribbles that are available online. When asked about he project, the duo stated that "Writing lyrics with the handwriting of influential songwriters helps imagination to develop. Being in the mood of Bowie, Cobain, Cohen, Gainsbourg, Lennon, might be purely imaginative … but that’s precisely the point."
