Hmm, this is a hard book to describe well to others. Sort of a tiny primer about typefaces and letters. Very short, very simple, yet a book that can be enjoyed over and over, the graphics are so lovely and creative. Every time I pick this tiny book up, there is a new revelation for me to see. Just love it!

Adorable explorations in the world of letters, the Serif Fairy searches for her lost wing in the Garamond Forest, Futura City, etc. Very sweet.
