While perusing the now fallen (so sad) Cookie magazine, we spotted a review for this amazing font learning book. Alphabeasties: And Other Amazing Types, published by Blue Apple Books is truly a typophiles dream - one with or without little ones!
The publishers description aptly explains how fun fonts can be! "Blocky or small. Thick or tall. Roundish, slope-y, fancy or dopey. Letters look different in all different places. That's because they have different typefaces. From an alligator made of aaa's to a zebra made of zzz's, the alphabeasties in this book are ingeniously built out of multiple typefaces. Adults and children will be engaged and delighted with the flaps, which lift to reveal 'beasties' for each letter of the alphabet.'
So, if you have a kid, are a kid or just love fonts - be sure to pick up a copy of Alphabeasties today. The indie childrens bookshop Red Balloon is stocked and ready to ship!
