About this title


One of our most popular titles, the striking woodcuts of this big, bold alphabet book, printed in two colors on beautiful paper, are a felicitous introduction to letters as well as to the charms of simple country life.

From the Back Cover:

The Vermont Board of Education commissioned Azarian to depict the 26 letters of the alphabet in illustrations depicting scenes little scholars would find familiar. In book form, the work is virtually a guaranteed success, for the artist is a brilliant full-time printmaker who has endowed these rural scenes with wit, dignity and imagination. Both the capitals and lowercase letters appear in words "Apple" through "Zinnia," each tuned to doings in the country throughout the year. No matter where children live -- on a farm, in the suburbs, or the city -- they will love this handsome book, and so will adult connoisseurs of woodcuts as an art.
