About this item
Readers will be mesmerized by these surreal and gorgeously rendered alphabet letters, cleverly shaped from flora, fauna, and more.At first glance, this elegant alphabet book—showcasing both upper- and lowercase letters—seems to follow a familiar formula. There’s an acrobat standing atop a horse to form a big letter Aand another curled under herself to make a small one. There’s a colony of beetles attached to the leaves they’ve munched, creating a big and a small letterB. But then comes the letter C, made of sea waves evoking the artist Hokusai. Or a lowercaseI in the form of a pen that has left an ink smudge, or two kingly beasts that create the letterK. And what of the many letters, equally fantastical and fascinating, whose associations are left to the viewers’ imaginations? Ingenious and intriguing, beautiful and full of stunning detail, this is an alphabet book sure to invite many repeat explorations.
