The name is Ambeck’s Typography Bestiary A-Z by Mette-Sofit D. Ambeck. First, I considered that the artist was creative the new word. The artist used the A-Z word alphabets to design any characters. In particular, this design makes alphabets be more interesting and have a fine sense of humorous. it can clear to understand a Ambeck is a good book artist, she creative a lot of art book, used many different ways. such as laser engraved and some a handmade book. she was studied MA Communication Design, Central Saint Martins, London, I think that she’s design style used many printing techniques, as well as related to his background.
