The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over a Lazy Dog

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2009

Hidden in buildings, road markings and street furniture are 26 letters. They’re subtle, still and don’t shout to be heard, but they’re everywhere. They’re fonts of urban life, a continuous and silent stream of typography, an A to Z entirely realised in London by Roberto Beretta in collaboration with Andreu Llorens. The 26 letters are also hidden in the most famous English pangram, 'The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog', which gives the book its title.
