Overview

Whether they're glowing from a neon sign or scrawled as graffiti on the wall, letters are both meaningful and beautiful. They also seem to pop up where you least expect it-on a bicycle wheel that looks like an “O” or wooden boards that form an “E.” With approximately 250 images taken by amateur photographers, Focus: Letters shines a spotlight on the infinity of ways letters decorate our world…proving that sometimes the vehicle can be even more interesting then the message itself.

For children like my granddaughter who have just finished learning all the alphabet letters, I think this will be wonderful. For grownups who love photography and typography and just generally noticing the world around them, this is great. I am one of the contributors in this book, my first time with this publisher or with the Focus series. I am favorably impressed from the quality of the hard cover with its cute cut-out area revealing an letter O in the form of a life preserver, to the thickness of the pages and the quality of print and colors. It is very nice! I want to find out what their next Focus book will be and see if I can plan some more contributions. This one wasn't planned ahead. They just found my photograph and liked it. I'm proud to be in it. Nobody paid me to say this. :o) Dorothy Delina Porter

Lark Books ( an imprint of Sterling Publications) does such a great job with both their "Focus" and "500" series. These are, in a way, special interest publications, but I also think of them more like creative fodder for all artists. I love seeing the way different people view the world around them - and nothing really does that better than the "Focus" series. This Focus - Letters plays on one of my favorite things. I love letters in all of their glorious variations. This book is a treasure house of letters - viewed any way that people find them. What I really appreciate about this series is that in looking at the photographs your own creativity is sparked. I often think "would I have noticed that?" or "what a great way to depict that!". Grab a copy of this modestly priced book and get your own creative juices going!
