Spelling box





This box was given to me by my sister-in-law. I think it's beautiful. My love for (vintage) kids' stuff, and typography is combined in this beautiful piece of teaching aid. A more modern version of this is still used in Dutch classrooms. My daughter Mila is quite familiar with it. It's a good thing children have small fingers, it took me forever to spell 'turning pages'. After a while I got bored and irritated 'cause I couldn't find a second letter N, so I turned a U upside down. Same effect, right?! (spoken like a true typographer)
