About this title

Synopsis:

Before she became a Caldecott medalist, Mary Azarian was a teacher in one of Vermont s last one-room schoolhouses. In the late 1970s, the state board of education commissioned her to create a farmer s alphabet, a series of bold red-and-black woodcut prints featuring the 26 letters, A to Z, and depicting scenes from Vermont life. Now gathered in book form, printed in two colors on beautiful paper, these striking woodcuts give us a child s-eye view of rural New England from Apple, Barn, and Cow to aX, Yawn, and Zinnia a homey, large-as-life world that readers of every age will want to inhabit. No M for McDonalds in Azarian's world: only Maple Sugar.
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.
