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.
