Classy Typographic Chess Set

This great find dubbed as Type(Chess)Set was created by Jim Sutherland of UK-based design consultants hat-trick design inspired by chess notation wherein K stands for King, Q for Queen and so on and so forth. The forms of each chess piece are based on the typeface Champion (lightweight) by Hoefler Frere Jones. Also, this is a limited-edition collection that comes in a foam tray with a greyboard sleeve.
