AMBECK'S TYPOGRAPHIC BESTIARY
Mette-Sofie D. Ambeck
Description: An A-Z exploration of typography. The images were taken from initial drawings completed in 1998/9, at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London. Ambeck constructs characters using letterforms, assigning them names such as “Borneo Billy” and “Nobody Noel”. The characters are personified, assigned a gender, diet as well as friends and foes. The book is printed upon Munken Pure paper (200gsm).
