Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Letters aren't found only in books, they're everywhere around us. Take a tour of Alphabet City, and soon you'll be seeing letters in the unlikeliest places. Uptown or downtown, Johnson's vivid, hyperrealistic paintings find beauty in the smallest details. With flashes of color, these always-surprising images invite us to reexamine and rediscover the city around us. 10/95.
