Beginners will certainly benefit in using the Typographical Chess Set as a way to familiarize themselves with the various and diverse players in the popular game of logic. Every playing piece is composed of a group of letters that literally spells out the name of it. You may have to tilt your head sideways to read the vertical characters that gradually increase in size towards the table.

The king, queen, knight, rook, bishop and pawn are crowned with the familiar heads, so it's only their bodies that have been rendered alphabetically. Designed by OneSaveSolutions, the chess pieces of the Typographical Chess Set are 3D-printed and come in a very wide variety of color and material choices of metals, stones and plastics.
