About this title

Synopsis:

The urban landscape will never look the same again. As Stephen T. Johnson demonstrates in a series of strikingly realistic pastels and watercolors, a simple sawhorse can contain the letter "A" while lampposts alongside a highway can form a row of elegant, soaring Ys. A 1996 Caldecott Honor book, this sophisticated, wordless alphabet book is sure to appeal to young and old alike."

About the Author:

Stephen T. Johnson is a highly versatile American artist whose art spans a broad range of concepts, contexts and mediums including painting, collage, drawing, sculpture and installations and can be seen in museum and gallery exhibitions, public art commissions, and through his original award-winning children s books.
Much of Johnson s work is characterized by an interest in the alphabet and language, which began with his book Alphabet City, a Caldecott Honor and New York TimesBest Illustrated Book of the Year. His most recent engagement with the alphabet is his ongoing series of literal abstractions which are the subject of his book A is for Art: An Abstract Alphabet, also a New York TimesBest Illustrated Book of the Year, and featured in several solo museum and gallery exhibitions."
