Prickly Pear

Here's a font with a special backstory. Prickly Pear is an offbeat handwritten font, created in a moving car, on the way to the Simpson Desert. Prickle Pear's 160+ ligatures help shape it's erratic and rugged feel. It's got messiness, it's got multi-linguals, it's got uppercase and lowercase and it's got a lot of character.

Triodia is a large genus of tussock grass endemic to Australia. The species of this genus are known by the common name spinifex, although they are not a part of the coastal genus Spinifex. Many soft-leaved Triodia species were formerly included in the genus Plectrachne. Triodia is known as tjanpi (grass) in central Australia, and have several traditional uses amongst the Aboriginal Australian peoples of the region.
