I love ABC books, always have but this one has a little something different. Its urbane, artsy, even chic and very very clever.
Johnson has taken his tripod and nipped all over the city with a very clever eye, to take photographs of anything and everything that look like letters of the alphabet. The only thing is these amazing photographs are NOT photographs. They are paintings.
Created in varying medium from watercolour to gouache and charcoal, these exquisite pictures give the eye a run for its money in search of the ABC.
Rest assured, your clever tots will find the letters well before you.
No wonder Alphabet City received a Caldecott Honor Award.
Love it. Add it to your ABC collection.Title:
