After watching this video I immediately went online and purchased Marian Bantjes book I Wonder . . . What a thrill when it arrived; I was immediately enchanted by it’s intricately gold-embossed cover imitating a delicate filigree design and the satisfying thickness of the cover boards, not to mention the golden gilded pages interrupted only by the smooth purple page-marking ribbon . . . ok I’ll stop there. But seriously, this book was definitely a labour of love and therefore something very special to have in your hands.
I found the same attention to detail and sense of wonder present throughout her TED talk – it’s inspiring for designers, typographers, and anyone else who appreciates the magic that happens when thoughtfulness and beauty come together.
