Typographic Chessboard

The white pieces are set in Caslon Bold Condensed and the black in Univers Bold Condensed, each respectively representing the traditional and modern sides of typography. The pieces are cast in resin and the board is 10mm black acrylic with 45 degree lines laser engraved to represent the squares.



  1. it is nice blog yasmine, thanks for sharing :)

  2. I do like these pieces as an object, but I'm not so confident in their practicality while in play, they lack the immediately recognizable heads of the classic chess set.
    A nice find regardless!

  3. This is really a nice chess set, but I would like to suggest an improvement. To avoid ambiguity with the moves of the king in chess notation the knight is abbreviated as ‘N’. If you would do the same I guess that all real chess players would be fond of your design.
