Felix Futura Goes to the Moon

children's book

For my type specimen book I was required to complete as a final assignment for my typography class, I decided to take a typeface commonly selected by students and pursue a completely different concept. I created the story of Felix, a member of the Futura typeface family, whose one wish is to go to the moon. The story is built around the fact that Futura is the first typeface to ever go to the moon, appearing on the plaque that was left there by the first astronauts in 1969. Though the overarching storyline is about Felix fulfilling his dream, I included the history and characteristics of the typeface throughout the book.
