About this title

Synopsis:

There is a world of letters just waiting to be discovered in the world around us - if you know how to look for it. In this inviting, delightful book, photographer Elliott Kaufman reveals the secret life of letters through his photographs that show how they can be found in things we encounter everyday. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by multiple images, all accidentally created by the intersection of building details or natural elements, caught by Kaufman's keen eye. This approach reinforces the notion that learning to see the familiar in new ways encourages visual literacy and creativity. The beautiful, artistic photographs encourage the mind to explore and not just recognize. "Alphabet Everywhere" will inspire readers of all ages to search for letters in architectural details or shapes found in nature.

Review:


From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-The author's experience as an architectural photographer translates into more than a hundred images that challenge readers to find as many forms as possible that "resemble the alphabet in ways that are accidental." Youngsters will find the expected "A" formed in the frame of a ladder, a steel I-beam, B- and C-shaped door handles, or a "Z" on a garage door, but sidewalk shadows and nature images such as the blossoming tulip (V), a serrated grapevine leaf (M), or an ocean wave approaching the shore (R), move beyond man-made art and architecture and are more difficult to pick out. An unusual collection of photographic art from city to country, this compendium includes creative angles and perspectives, further informing readers with a final index of all the photo sources. Compare this book's artistry and imagination to Krystina Castella and Brian Boyl's Discovering Nature's Alphabet (Heyday, 2006) or combine it with Stephen Johnson's Alphabet City (Viking, 1995). This collection of images stretches through 60 pages, perhaps a challenge for younger readers, although the die-cut ABC on the cover is instantly eye-catching.
