There is a world of letters just waiting to be discovered in the world around us -- if we know how to look for it.
n this engaging and delightful book, photographer Elliott Kaufman reveals the "secret" life of the alphabet through his photographs, showing how letters can be found in things we encounter every day. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by multiple images, each unintentionally created by the intersection of architectural details, shadows, light, or natural elements as caught by Kaufman's keen eye. Some are obvious, while others demand a little more imagination to recognize, inviting the readers to start their own game of hunting for letters! This fun approach also reinforces the notion that learning to see the familiar in new ways encourages visual literacy and creativity.
Elliott Kaufman is an architectural photographer whose work has been displayed in venues such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Light Gallery (NYC). He currently teaches at Queens College and the International Center for Photography.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First, I want to thank netgalley and the publisher for this book for an honest review. I sat down with my four year old grandson and we read this book. It is pictures of different structures etc that make up letters of the alphabet. It made saying his abc's more fun as we looked at the different things that made letters of the alphabet.
