Summary
  • 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
  • Paintings of objects in an urban setting present the letters of the alphabet

Summary
In this wordless display, photographs of objects in an urban setting present the letters of the alphabet, some which are obvious, while others, more subtle, "come to light through a closer look."
