Review quote

Is there any new way left to present the alphabet? The answer is "yes," as this graphic artist demonstrates when he applies his retro style to the ABCs. . . . Skillfully constructed and cleverly composed, it's an awesome alphabet book that adults will also appreciate. Kirkus Reviews (starred review) As is the custom with most such books, we travel in orderly fashion from A to B to C and onward, but here most letters take the shape of an object or idea-or the object or idea takes the shape of the letter, depending-with results that are both surprising and refreshing. Wall Street Journal Each of Thurlby's letters is meticulously conceived - he often uses old books and pieces of paper for backgrounds, and his art has a very stylized, retro feel.
