Letters: Building an Alphabet with Art and Attitude
by Peter N Liptak (illustrated by Lynn Tsan)

ABC - Do you Dot a D?

An Alphabet Apart
In Letters, the art and poetry of the English alphabet comes alive through rhythm and rhyme in philosophically charged verse. Much can be learned about a people by the language they use, but what can be said of the letters of that language? This playful treatise on the English alphabet explores the art and philosophy of some letters as they gained form in one artist's eye and expression in the language of a wondering wordsmith. 26 letters called out for a home and found one in the words of this tiny tome.

The quotable alphabet book:

  • "The Lime Launched the First Attack!"
  • "The idea, like a chill, catching... Endlessly in an E etch-a-sketching."
  • "Self reflection in dual direction... What will you find upon inspection?"
  • "With sudden laughter, or intense sigh, An L will come to mind awry."
  • "Pure of heart, "we are P," they said."
  • "Self," said S. "What is the correction of my silvery snakelike perfection?"
  • "Unbending and unbeatable, uncompromising U led / A revolution to unite alphabet's understanding / For all who would learn, U are outstanding!"

About the author
Peter N. Liptak lives and writes in Seoul, Korea. As a purveyor of the English language, Peter believes in the power of poetry to teach the rhythmic beauty and artistry of communication.

From the Inside Flap:

ABC... the art and poetry of the English alphabet explained in a philosophical verse of rhythm and rhyme.

Much can be learned about a people by the language they use, but what can be said of the letters of that language? This playful treatise on the alphabet of English explores the art and philosophy of some letters as they gained form in one artist's eye (and expression in the language of a wondering wordsmith).

Art, Caffeine and Kismet

This book is dedicated to destiny,

the suggestion of serendipity,

to the gods of chance,

the happy help of happenstance,

the fortune of fate and

the likelihood of luck.

From a chance meeting,

a house seen,

a coffee shop greeting,

began an alliance between artists

intent on caffeine induced creations.

An artist's adventure into the alphabet

led a man of letters to seek their soul,

but what could we know

of the words that would grow

from such warm inscriptions all aglow?

26 letters called out for a home

and found one in the words of this tiny tome.

Two from the Twin Cities

The man of letters Peter Liptak

The woman of words art Lynn Tsan
