Walt Whitman's Faces resulted from reading a poem in the 1855 (first) edition of Leaves of Grass that struck me as being about typefaces. I set the poem as a type specimen, illustrating what I believed to be Whitman's descriptions of type with appropriate examples. Karen Karbiener, a Whitman scholar, contributed an essay on the poem.
