The Typeface Memory Game is the perfect gift for the Typography obsessed. It includes 25 variations of the letter ‘A’, each in a different letter type.
Typographic information about the letter is included on the card, and a separate folder provides a general history of the typography. Among the letter types included in the game are Akzidenz Grotesk, Baskerville, Centaur, Garamond, Helvetica Rockwell, Times New Roman, Univers and many more.

These are pretty dang cool, I bought some at a local book store here in Houston by the name of Domy books. I really like’em. They are proudly displayed on my office shelf.
