Around The World with the Bodoni Family

Teresa Monachino‘s latest book, Around The World with the Bodoni Family, got a mention in our current issue in our profile on The Society of Revisionist Typographers (SORT). However, at the time of going to print with the January issue the book – which has been letterpress printed by SORT in an edition of just 40 – wasn’t ready to be photographed. Now it is ready and has indeed been shot – so here are some images and a bit more info about the project…

The 60 page book, conceived and designed by graphic designer (and author of Words Fail Me, Phaidon, 2006) Teresa Monachino, features a series of charmingly witty typographic illustrations, each using a letter of the alphabet (from the Bodoni typeface) to illustrate a global location beginning with that particular letter. For example:

The book, limited to just 40 hand numbered editions, has been lovingly letterpressed by SORT on GF Smith Colorplan Mist 175gsm, and case bound in Dubletta red bookcloth by Robert Warren of the Fleuron Bindery – a professional neighbour of SORT in London’s Cockpit Arts studios.

Around The World with the Bodoni Family features an introduction signed by Monachino and a foreword written and signed by Dan Cruickshank – who readers may recall presented Around The World in 80 Treasures on the BBC back in 2005. It is now available direct from Studio Monachino (enquiries to info@studiomonachino.co.uk) and also from the London Design Museum Shop priced at £95.
