On My Bookshelf: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog

I like the idea of turning a design exercise into a mini publication. In this book, Roberto Beretta makes a photographic alphabet out of his surroundings in London. It's as much about photography as it is about typography. My favorites are the J and the Z. Funny thing about this is creating a photographic alphabet was my very first graphic design assignment in undergrad. I wonder if my professors found this book and it inspired the idea for the assignment… 

Another thing that's interesting is that the content streams from cover to cover. The artist statement and colophon are in the center of the book. The almost pocket-sized covers are backed in a thick paperboard which makes it wonderful to hold and interact with.
