Board Book To Teach Toddlers About Fonts

Want to teach the toddler in your life how to appreciate typography?

MIT design researcher Jesse Austin-Breneman hopes to raise $15,000 on Kickstarter to fund a first edition printing of his board book, Are You My Typeface?  We’ve embedded a video about the project above, complete with lots of cute kids. Here’s more about the project:

The story of a little lost “a” searching for its typeface. It meets many other typefaces before finally finding its home. This project started as a hand-made board book for my daughter and a couple of her friends. I love typography and wanted to share that experience with her … In the end, this project is basically about sharing my family’s love of typography in a way other families can use. That’s why I’ve focused on board books and posters that are fun, bright and full of classic fonts.

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
