“Images cannot – and must not- be looked at in isolation from the surrounding text” (Moebius)
Typeface can indicate the playfulness or the seriousness of a book. The text in this book shows that the book is suitable for young children, and the position of the words, as if the character is shouting them out adds another playful layer to the narrative.
Different colour fonts can complement the images:
Different typefaces are used for different voices.
Each character in this book has their own typeface to represent their own voice. This is a great technique when there is a dialogue between two or more people. The different types in this books not only compliment the pictures, but they become an integral part of the artwork.
