Publisher Comments:

The company's dancers join limbs, twist, and grip to form 26 letters — an alphabet made of the human body, captured in glorious color photographs. Alongside each letter, they've also composed a picture: Ants for A; Butterfly for B; Circus for C — and so on through Z, a human Zipper. Can you guess what each one shows? Pilobolus brings their creativity and hallmark visual style to a unique picture book.
