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.
