Al-pha-bet-i-ca

In this book, a group of fourteen artists collaborate to create fourteen individual books based on the alphabet and numbers as a theme.  Some of these artists had never met each other.

Each artist creates a ' journal' for the collaboration that then travels and is added to by the other thirteen artists, inviting them to engage, play and experiment.  Eventually all the books arrive back with the owner full of stories and surprises on every page.

Full of creativity, inspiration, improvisation, everything and anything brings a range of styles and mixed media techniques to life in the pages.

Al-pha-bet-i-ca is a record of the resulting journals and the journeys they made.  It gives a personal glimpse of the artists' thought processes and style.  Journal books of all shapes, sizes and dimensions emerge.

This book is food if you have an artistic soul.
