A children’s alphabet, which appeals to audiences of all ages, encourages a desire to read and relates reading to art. Letters in this charming alphabet are depicted in delightful characters, wondrous objects suggested by Tony Fitzpatrick’s two young children, Max and Gaby. The artist uses a variety of sources including children’s books, field guides, circus posters, tattoo designs, and folk art for his four-color prints.
