On the occasion of the launch of the SangBleu typeface, Swiss Typefaces issues a book for lovers of the printed letterform. On 128 pages, “SangBleu Typeface: The King, His Court, The Explorer & The Gift” celebrates cutting-edge typography in general and the SangBleu fonts in particular. Devised as a collector’s item, it provides a unique combination of design and content: at the heart of the publication is a novella by Daniela Party, specifically written for this purpose.
Designed by Swiss Typefaces with illustrations by Daniela Party, the SangBleu Typeface book measures 24,5 × 31,5 cm and is printed in five colors, four of them Pantone spot colors including metallic and neon inks. It is further enriched by a blue colored top edge and a special binding with several fold-out pages – all made in Switzerland. The book is now available in a limited edition of 1,000 copies.
