Seven Seas Has a Type with License of WHAT THE FONT?! – A MANGA GUIDE TO WESTERN TYPEFACE

Posted on February 20th, 2020

Seven Seas Entertainment is thrilled to announce the license acquisition of What the Font?! – A Manga Guide to Western Typeface by Kuniichi Ashiya and Masayuki Yamamoto, a unique and engaging tool for learning about design using anthropomorphized Western fonts!

When the designer in a small production company suddenly disappears, Marusu is forced to take over the job of creating logos. Unfortunately, Marusu is a sales representative who doesn’t know the first thing about fonts! Luckily, Helvetica, the personification of that font, appears to guide Marusu into the world of typeface and design. This fun and educational book is the perfect way to learn about typography through the manga personification of various fonts–including Futura, Arial, Optima, and more–and shed light on the design behind the words readers absorb every day.

Seven Seas will publish the manga What the Font?! – A Manga Guide to Western Typeface for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in a single large trim edition. The book will be released on September 22, 2020 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN.
