    The first edition of C.S. Lewis’s classic bestseller as a board book, with illustrations by Joey Chou. From the publisher website:

    A gentle retelling of C.S. Lewis’s classic bestseller, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, perfect for storytime with the tiniest readers!

    The book cover uses Sunbeat by PintassilgoPrints, together with Signature Sans by Harmony Type. The Sunbeat family spans three styles, each font is all-caps, with two alternates for each letter. There are also a handful of interlocking letterforms.

    Here’s a small interview with Douglas Gresham (stepson of C.S. Lewis) about the making of the book.
