‘Mijn lettervrienden’ (My Letter friends) is a typographic picture book in which graphic designer and illustrator Annabel Keijzer shows both her love of letters and her love of her friends.
A book full of letters, that’s not so strange. But can one also become friends with letters? This book is full of letter friends. Adventurous, shameless, driven, virtuoso, combative, harmonious. The fifteen friends in Mijn lettervrienden all have a characteristic that makes them loveable.
Annabel: “If you abandon the rules, it’s quite possible to tell a story without using text. You can even become friends with letters. The colors are extra intense; the book is printed in no less than 6 Pantone colors.”
Over the past five years, Annabel Keijzer kept working on the book, without the mediation of a publishing house and without funds, subsidies and/or crowdfunding.
