The Movable Book of Letterforms

Designer, Kevin Steele has created this spectacular introduction to letterforms. It’s a hand-crafted pop-up book, in an edition of three only, which acts as both an educational tool and a tribute to the craft of paper architecture. I wish there was a mass-production version. See more at Kevin’s web site.

This pop-up book serves as a basic introduction to letterforms, their origins, and unique characteristics. Type plays a fundamental role in the communication process as much through the shapes and styling of the letterforms as the actual words that they join to form. This book also attempts to demonstrate how movable books can be used to educate and create visual impact for audiences of all ages. Interior: digital print on Mohawk Superfine 80lb cover Cover: Laval velour bookcloth debossed with polymer plate All movable parts cut and assembled by hand. 2009 22 pages, 8.25″ x 8.25″ x 2.25″ Edition of 3

The designer’s guide to grid theory

I spend a lot of time emphasising the importance of grids both in my commercial training as creativelab and also as a lecturer at the University of Stirling. Creativebloq has posted this useful introduction to grids in design. It;s primarily about screen design but many of the principles are true for print too. Well worth a look.
