Type chess set

Type chess set

Linda and John Meyers built this beautiful chess set using typography, a scroll saw and boxes (in the form of a old type-holding tray). It’s from Wary Meyers’ Tossed & Found, their new book about re-purposing found objects. [via dudecraft]

    It’s cute, but I would have used the more traditional N for kNight so it’s easier to tell from King. And as a chess player, my preference is for easy of recognizing the pieces over aesthetics.

    I love it. And as a typographer, I prefer the upper and lower case k’s. Nice touch.
