alphabeasties : and other amazing types
My sister gave me this book over the holidays and hit two birds with one stone: children's books + typography.
Alphabeasties is a brilliant demonstration of graphic design combined with playful, educational material captured in a colorful, hardcover book. Each page displays an animal made up entirely of the first letter, like this sheep of s's above. Every animal is made from a different typeface and the page is bordered with fun little illustrations of other animals and commentary on the letterforms.
