Alphabet City
By Stephen T. Johnson

Review by: Ellen Dragonetti

     Alphabet City is a walk through an extraordinary art gallery.  At first glance, the illustrations appear to be photos, each one capturing a letter of the alphabet as seen by a playful mind throughout New York City.  To discover that each magnificent page is in reality a painting be award winning artist Stephen T. Johnson, is only half of the fun.
     The real delight comes when you have to find the capitol letters amongst the textures, patterns, and shadows of the city.  Each page cleverly helps us find the hidden beauty in an otherwise somber city.  Children and adults alike will enjoy Alphabet City and may even be inspired to look through their own environments for hidden letters in everyday life, and take a camera and a sketch pad along too!
     Alphabet City is a fresh way to teach, admire and discover the alphabet in ways most people never imagined.  How many people look at the side of a hanging traffic light to see a capitol E ?  Or notice the letter R in the cracks of a leaf covered stone walk?  Alphabet City is fun, beautiful and inspiring while it teaches letter recognition with a fresh and fun concept.  Families and people of all ages will enjoy this book and children will adore it.
