For The Love of Type

The Design Museum's Design Factory 2013 brief called for the use of unusual materials, and this brought me out of my comfort zone and take on the concept of an artists book.

With bulsa wood pages, cardboard and foil letter shapes and a hard wood base, all linked together with two thick wire loops, "For the Love of Type" was made to showcase the dedication that goes into designing typefaces.

On each page is a different letter of the alphabet in a different typeface. There becomes a challenge to guess the typeface, with the answers subtly situated on the back of each page.
