This is an amazingly beautiful book which unfortunately (with a couple of others, reviews on their way) got waylaid on a shelf under some other more trivial items.

Whether this is a gift or a title for your library collection (either primary or secondary) it will be much appreciated for its beauty and unique creativity.

Messenger, who abandoned the world of ad agencies to become a full time illustrator in 1978, has devised the most magical, magnificent and surreal alphabet book by taking ordinary objects and transforming them into both upper and lower case letters.

It is not so much as an alphabet book that it will be a hit but rather as a delicious dip into surrealism for art lovers of all ages.

Highly recommended for any school library collection.
