    Monteiro Lobato’s most classic book was just published in a new luxury edition by Companhia das Letrinhas. The book was designed by Juliana Vidigal, with illustrations by Lole. This special edition was initiated and organized by Marisa Lajolo, Brazil’s greatest specialist in Lobato’s work.

    The main character is a rag doll. The layers of fabric, stitching, embroidery and patchwork inspired the use of Peter Biľak’s History (Typotheque, 2008) for the titles. History comes in 21 styles, ranging from letter skeletons with high and low contrast to layers of slabs and swashes. The book makes use of a good deal of them, partially reproduced by embroidery. Eduardo Berliner’s Pollen (TypeTogether, 2011) is used for the book text and footnotes. The footnotes explain the Brazilian vocabulary and customs of the 1920s through fun dialogues between characters in a design that simulates chat conversations.

      Yay! All uses of History are great but adding stitching to it is even better.
