A brand new collection of typographic delights from this award-winning illustrator. Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated by an animal starting with the letter, and made entirely of the letters that spell its name. Bright colors are used to help beginners find the basic alphabet, while older readers can unscramble the whole image by finding all the letters. The exact fonts used are provided in a key on each page to make it easier to hunt and find all the letters that spell each animal portrait. A great way to learn the alphabet, improve spelling, letter-recognition, and observation, and discover typography and design.
