Description

ABC... Do you Dot a D?

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.
