Almost 20 years ago, I designed an alphabet book for my daughter Viva. It was illustrated with a menagerie, using only the letters of the animal’s name using the classic typeface Bembo. The initial letter for each animal’s name is the same both in English and Portuguese, so I could teach my daughter both languages.
