THE SERIF FAIRY
It’s an archetypal story of the quest and belonging, told through a unique vehicle that educates and entertains at the same time, letting children learn about typography without realizing they are.
This is a really lovely book for children interested in type design and layout. It is published by Mark Batty Publisher. The book is about a little fairy who has lost her wing and the book takes us on a journey through landscapes made up of letters from different typefaces.
I think this book would be a nice gift, not just for a child, but anyone with an interest in type.
Victor and Susie
It is a new children’s book from design studio Brighten the Corners, illustrated entirely from type. The story concerns Victor – a snail with a hole in his shell – and Susie, who decides to help him get better.
Little Bee Lost
It’s the story of a bee that gets lost in a forest and meets a bird who helps bring him home with a few exciting adventures with other animals along the way. It’s aimed at 2 – 4 year olds, or any kid that like colourful pictures of striped animals.
