A great ABC board book is a must-have for any baby or toddler’s book list and here’s a clever one that appeals to both little ones and adults. Bembo’s Zoo puts a creative spin on typical animal alphabet books in a simple but entertaining way by highlighting the elegant and graceful typeface, Bembo.

Bembo is used throughout the book to introduce the animal names, but instead of animal illustrations, the animals are created using the letters of their name, so there’s a bit of letter discovery involved in identifying the animals as well.

Bembo’s Zoo book is available for purchase here, but you can also visit their website to see a cool interactive use of the letters in action using the typeface (note: you must have Flash installed to view).
