Eeormoo? is a let­ter­press printed chil­dren's book by Lon­don-based de­signer Jim Suther­land, about an­i­mals who dream of be­ing other an­i­mals. “The project started when I did a poster sym­po­sium at Nor­wich Univer­sity of the Arts called ‘cow­bird', about the re­la­tion­ship be­tween print and dig­i­tal work,” he ex­plains. “It was a Twit­ter bird say­ing ‘moo' and a cow say­ing 'tweet'. I started putting to­gether an­i­mals with the wrong noises. It was some­thing that ap­pealed to my child­like sense of hu­mour.” The an­i­mal il­lus­tra­tions, by Re­becca Suther­land, were laser-cut as wood­blocks, so they could be printed along with the words. Suther­land also worked with let­ter­press ty­pog­ra­pher and de­signer Kelvyn Lau­rence Smith on the project.
