Today on March 8th, 2016 we are happy to announce to launch of Aerial Bold. It has been a year+ long journey navigating new collaborations, learning new lessons, and making new friends. We could not have done it without your support!

We are also happy to announce that from our Kickstarter, the  ABC: The Alphabet from the Sky - an children's (and adult) alphabet book will be hitting the shelves September 13th, 2016 at major book retailers near you and on the web. Over the last year we've had to keep the project under wraps as we worked with Penguin Random House to come up with new designs and ways to interact with the Aerial Bold letterforms. Now with the launch of Aerial Bold, we are so excited to share this news with you. Who knows, maybe your house or office made it in! 

We will keep you updated on the book, any exhibitions we have, and on the development of the dataset or other spin-off projects. 

We'd love to hear from you!
