Book Review :: An Artist's Alphabet by Norman Messenger

"A surreal and gorgeous alphabet book from exceptional artist Norman Messenger."

If you're looking for a book that's a little out of the ordinary, I've totally found it for you.  An Artist's Alphabet is perrrrfect for fans of the surreal, and anyone looking for an un-cutesy alphabet book. The unconventional subject matter is refreshing, no 'B is for Ball' here, peeps!  This is definitely the type of book kids will sit and pore over in front of the fire, with so many exquisite details and unexpected letter pairings.  

The sophistication of the illustrations makes this the perfect choice for 5+ readers, and I think it will appeal to older siblings (and adults) too.  The illustrations are both soft and striking, with so many hours of work in each one.  Truly a treasure.

An Artist's Alphabet is available now in hardback through Walker Books and all good bookstores.  Checkit!
