A book about A-holes… the typographical kind

A book about A-holes… the typographical kind

Curtis Canham has a design joke that asks, “You know, that negative space found in the letter ‘A’?” Canham, a teacher and a designer, has created a book to explore this typographical question with a tongue-in-cheek coffee table book called A-holes: A type book.

While his initial idea was to just create a book that is a visual compendium of A-hole shapes, he instead pulled from his background as an educator to look at the history of this commonplace and often overlooked typographic negative space. Having funded the project through Kickstarter, he jokes, “’Font’ is a four letter word that starts with an ‘F’.”

Hear the designer talk about the beginnings of the project in the video below.
