When it comes to teaching the alphabet, many books focus on its literary aspects and possibilities, but if one were to take a closer look, each letter offers so much more than meets the eye. The Typefaces by Scott Lambert combines letterpress printing, story-telling, and childlike observations to reveal the faces in type; making it a compelling learning tool and treasure trove of playfully hidden gems for the designer in every child and the child in every designer. Initially self-published in 2015, it has gone on to win several global design awards with its wit and charm since – culminating in the release of this brand new edition.
