[type, design] A Typographic Fairy Tale?

858. Yes, a typographic fairy tale. From Mark Batty Publisher (typography has few better friends in print these days), comes the sweet tale of a little fairy made entirely of glyphs who has lost her magical left wing.

We follow her on her quest throught Garamond Forest, the Zentanar Gate, Futura City, and lastly Shelley Lake where she achieves the object of her quest. It is delightful and cute and really does teach typographic basics while you're not paying attention–there's even a "Where's Waldo"-style easter egg in.

Lest I give too much away up front, read me on it at Designorati here.
