The Typefaces is a new book from Singapore based designer and illustrator Scott Lambert that aims to celebrate playful products for kids and kids-at-heart. "Inspired by letterpress printing and childlike observations, The Typefaces are simply faces in type," Lambert explains.

"They were born in a book, grew up in a comic and can now be found wondering the streets, climbing the walls, tweeting their mouths off, and spending all their time on the world wide interweb." Produced as a hard-back book as well as a commuter friendly newspaper, The Typefaces will bring out the creative kid in you.
