A dual-purpose story book and chess set for young children .

‘Chess on earth’ is all about teaching chess in a fun, approachable way. In order to impress on children the basics of the game, this book represents the pieces on a monumental scale. The pieces come to life as elements of the earth, such as waterfalls, rivers or mountains. Each character has its own personality which defines the way they move about the board. Day and night represent white and black pieces, and the movement of the pieces becomes the changes in the landscape.

Chess on Earth can be read as a traditional story book, or played using the board and pieces included.

He went on to design a chess set as a part of his book, ‘Light Box’ published by Architectural Association in 1985 while he was unit master. In 2013, he designed and art directed the World Chess Candidates Tournament, and his new World Chess set became the official set of the World Chess organisation – FIDE.
