Marion Bataille‘s ABC3D & more


I may be woefully behind the times on this, but I just had to share it, not the least because the soundtrack is a song by the super duper Boswell Sisters! On the same topic, here's an image from a New York City alphabet book by Joanne Dugan, whose progeny were tired of ones with barnyard friends.


Any favorite alphabet books you'd like to share? Edward Gorey comes to mind....
There are 19,799 alphabet books listed on Amazon. The Graphic Alphabet by David Pelletier will please adults immensely in its marriage of form and content (below is his representation of "o"). Among our offerings, pop-up maestro Robert Sabuda's The Christmas Alphabet is a particularly fetching one. And if you feel design-y, have a look at Modern Display Alphabets: 100 Complete Fonts.

    Check out www.bemboszoo.com for a great example of an alphabet project that combines font, animation and imagination.
