The publishers will correctly tell you, this book has a broader reach than type design professionals, and that it is a must-read for students and professionals alike. My thinking is this is a book I wish was written sooner - but I am grateful exists now. Whether you're an art director, graphic designer, calligrapher, historian, print enthusiast or harbour any curiosity for the mechanics of visual language this book is essential reading.

Andersen is born from a lack of typefaces adapted to children’s stories and the fact that they are often written to be read aloud. The major innovation is the creation of a complementary punctuation system. Indeed, in addition to classic glyphs, Andersen has 11 totally new punctuation marks that can be used to express feelings. These glyphs are placed at the beginning and end of a sentence to help the reader to find the right tone. What a fantastic concept!
