The Serif Fairy has lost her wing, keeping her from performing magic. This book follows her through an airy, immaculately designed typographic landscape as she hunts for it. Along the way, she makes friends and has adventures as she wanders through the Garamond Forest, visits Futura Town and eventually ends her quest at Shelley Lake.

An amazing book for type aficionados and their children,  The Serif Fairy  epitomizes the synthesis of form and function, the ultimate goal of good design. In this Type Director's Club award-winning children's book, readers both young and old are sure to delight in the tale and illustrations. Children will marvel at the unique visual renderings of trees, towns and animals, hardly realizing that they are learning about typography.

More than a lesson, however, this book is entertaining for all readers, who are sure to root for the Serif Fairy as she searches for that part of her that makes her complete. This archetypal story told through such innovative illustrations furthers the genre of children's books, proving how they can be fun and informative for both the young and young at heart!
