what did we LOVE: bembo's zoo

"...the picture book debut of deVicq de Cumptich, should delight collectors of stylish picture books and aficionados of the graphic arts." - Publisher's Weekly


The entire alphabet A - Z of animals from "Antelope" to "Zebra," with things like iguanas, octopuses and flamingos in between, crafted entirely out of the Bembo typeface. It's pretty much amazing. This man (Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich) has skills beyond belief in having been able to make the likenesses of 26 animals out of the letters in their names. Recommeded for viewing by my type core studio teacher. Was a children's book before it became an entertaining flash website! Would love to own it though just clicking on the site is fairly satisfying.
