I just saw this lovely little ABC book over on Brain Pickings. It was designed by Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich and published in 2000 so it's been around a while but it's typographic illustrations have definitely stood the test of time.
Roberto wanted an ABC book he could use to teach his daughter both English and Portugese so it needed animal names that started with the same letter in each language. After an unsuccessful search he created his own version, Bembo's Zoo using the typeface Bembo as a basis for all the typographic illustrations...
