Typographic Chess Set Spells Out the Pieces

Chess is the game of champions. While this chess set may not be the absolutely best teaching tool for the game, it works great as a design showcase. Each piece is composed of letters spelling out the piece’s name. This chess set design is actually available via Shapeways as a 3D printed object, so you can get it in your choice of plastics or metals.
