    Le singe et l’ours (“the monkey and the bear”) is an ABC book, made with linocuts and letterpress by studio deux point deux. It has been printed in 45 signed and numbered copies.

    In printing houses’ slang, the printer is the bear, the monkey the typographer.

    We use Antique Olive Nord and the light weight of Paris ND types for contrast, and opposite tones of fluo colors for opposite animals and universe.
