Some interesting typographical insights in under seven minutes from Kjell Reigstad.by
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

London design agency La Boca has created a series of luminous (and just a bit retro) covers for classic titles from Penguin’s Science Fiction list. This interview from Adobe Create offers some interesting insights into their creative and technical processes.
I love the fact that they’ve kept to the spirit of the classic Penguin SF covers I grew up with but have brought a modern sensibility and have created animated versions suitable for the mobile era.
