Drew's ABCs, a unique letterpressed limited edition book, was designed to expose the reader to the richness of diversity within typography while embracing the imperfections of well-worn letterforms that unveil a bit of typographic and printing history. By drawing out these unique distinctions and differences, the goal is to impress upon the audience that “we learn to see as we see to learn”. Each page of the alphabet was designed and printed using only the type, woodblocks, and line-engraved images that have been amassed for over the past 20 years by designers & authors Brenda McManus & Ned Drew.
