Typographic Conundrums by Harry Pearce.
[photo was lost to time…]
This awesome little book is full of typographic conundrums that need to be visually decoded into revealing a common saying or phrase. Very clever in their wit and simplicity.
I was lucky enough to attend Cumbria University where Harry Pearce was asked to give a talk. He showed off some of these conundrums and (when asked in the Q&A;) said he wasn’t planning to publish them! Can you believe that? I bet he changed his mind after years of nagging.
Pearce will be speaking on the 19th Jan in Plymouth. More info here.
