    A–Z: Coast to Coast Shore to Shore is a book designed by Johan Elmehag as his thesis project at Malmö University.

    The project aims at finding innovative ways to present the geographical impact of climate change. The idea was born out of the sense that climate change is somewhat abstract and difficult to address, both emotionally and informationally. The core of the project is a typeface based on future vulnerable coastal areas, the letters are shaped after the way the world would look like if all the world’s ice melted. The font is presented in an ABC book where each letter represents a specific area and a unique future. The letters organize the information and creates a natural way of presenting it. The project is also available in the form of a web page and a big world map.

    The typeface is named Coastline and can be obtained for free. The text in the book is set in Minion. The accompanying poster uses Suisse Int’l.
