Animals, Ampersands & Inspiration

10 Jun

If you are not yet familiar with Bembo’s Zoo, check it out. Designer and illustrator Roberto de Vicq Cumptich has developed beautiful illustrations of zoo animals using nothing but Bembo letterforms. Each illustration is comprised only of the letters that appear in the name of the animal depicted, as well as punctuation characters.

This work definitely raises the bar for typographical creativity. The illustrations are available in book form and may also be viewed on this interactive website.
