Editorial Reviews

Janice Del Negro
Originally published by Celestial Arts in paperback in 1981, this "redesigned and reissued" hardback version contains color photographs of everyday objects that, when looked at closely, turn into the letters of the alphabet. A yellow sawhorse becomes the letter "A", a gold necklace a precious "U". Production values are high: crisp color photographs are set against glossy white backgrounds; upper case letters appear in a pastel color picked up from a hue found in the photographed object. Whether a child is just learning the alphabet or already knows it, this is an involving browser that contributes a fresh look at commonplace, usually unnoticed things we find around us.
