Here are a few spreads from the book, which is cheekily illustrated by Studio 3, the Westerdals School of Communication in Oslo’s in-house design studio.

You can play find the true of faux italic on this spread…

Learn about X-heights and weights on these pages…

It’s available now for £17.99 from the Gestalten online shop.
