Une édition typographique du Scrabble

Le Scrabble, jeu de société à la renommée mondiale (produit dans 121 paus et en 29 langues) créé en 1931 par Alfred Mosher Butts, se pare de sens plus beaux atours dans cette nouvelle édition nommée A-1 Scrabble designer edition. Conçue par l’artiste Californien Andrew Clifford Capener, cette nouvelle version a pour but de susciter l’enthousiasme des joueurs pour la typographie, en leur permettant de choisir eux-mêmes les polices de leur plateau de jeu.

The A-1 Scrabble designer edition. The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would be available in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. Additional font packs (including your favorite font) could be ordered through Scrabble’s website. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.
