An alphabet of typefaces

SEA has created a range of 26 notebooks, each featuring one letter – from A-Z – set in a different typeface from the Monotype library.

Notebooks

The notebooks have been created to mark the one-year anniversary of online shop FAO, with Monotype commissioned to create a bespoke product.

Notebooks

SEA delved into the Monotype library to select the typefaces, which are presented in a range of upper and lower cases.

Notebooks

They range from the familiar (a Clarendon ‘h’, a Johnston Bold ‘Y’) to the lesser-known.

Notebooks

We’re particular fans of the ‘S’ in Braggadocio, which was created in 1930 by W.A. Woolley, and the use of Gill Sans Ultra Bold on the ‘i’, with its charming off-centre dot.

Notebooks

The notebooks are available for sale at www.fao-shop.com or at the pop-up shop as part of designjunction (18—22 September). A set is also available through a competition at www.fao-shop.com/faocompetition.
