ABC 3D Book

This is not just a book but a work of art. Each of the 26 three-dimensional letters move and change before your eyes as you flip through the pages. Book designer MARION BATAILLE has managed to amaze us. Boldly conceived and brilliantly executed with a striking black, red, and white palette, this is a book that readers and art lovers of all ages will treasure for years to come. This October will be published.

Chris Clark has recently graduated with a first class honours degree in Graphic Design from the University of the West of England. One of his project is the "typecube". This is a design box which contains 64 cubes with different forms on every side of the cube, which provide the basis of two dimensional and three dimensional typographic systems, encouraging flexibility within uniform structure. It is a very creative type game which will be on production soon.

Bodoni as never seen before.

The online version of Bodoni Script Pro has just been released. Based on Bodoni’s distinct swash capitals, this is not simply a digital version of his work, as this typeface was designed with connected lowercase characters and capitals with extra calligraphic elements. It was first released back in 2002 and published in Parachute’s award-winning catalog/book IDEA/Trendsetting Typography vol.1. Later in 2005 a large number of ornaments and borders was revived. All this work was left behind until recently when it was revisited to create a complete 'Pro' family. Several new uppercase and lowercase glyphs were designed in order to make it stand out on its own. Bodoni Script Pro is a (3+1)-weight superfamily. It supports 10 special opentype features including 'contextual alternates' as well as support for both Latin and Greek. Each font comes with 725 glyphs including a large number of alternates as well as 144 ornaments. The full package includes an additional 'bonus font' which contains 120 frame parts. These parts, when put together, create some truly amazing borders.
