Notes From Your Bookseller

If you're familiar with Sam Winston's fine art, his thoughtful One and Everything won't surprise you. It will, however, revitalize your appreciation for masterful storytelling. His special collaboration with Oliver Jeffers on A Child of Books appears to have been his opening act in the picture book space. One and Everything belongs on every bookshelf and coffee table and if you're ever at a loss for a present, make it this picture book.

Fine artist Sam Winston, cocreator of the New York Times best-selling A Child of Books, celebrates the power of stories and written languages—and the imperative to preserve them.

Once there were many stories in the world. There were stories with sunsets and wonderful tales filled with fairies and dinosaurs. But one day, a story decided that it was the best, the most important story ever. It called itself the One and started to consume every other story it came across. The One ate stories made of seas and others full of dogs. Soon it seemed that the One was all there was . . . or was it? Inspired by the Endangered Alphabets project, aimed at preserving cultures by sharing their unique scripts, author-illustrator Sam Winston uses writing systems such as cuneiform and Tibetan, Egyptian hieroglyphs and ogham to illustrate this book in his signature typography-based style, using symbols and letters that have relayed the world’s stories over the centuries.
