the moving alphabet book

      “Learning the alphabet can be fascinating…fun…and easy. Turn the wheel and a new image appears in the cut-out window. Turn it again and again until you have seen four different pictures in all. Each letter is surrounded by marvelous drawings of animals and objects that start with the letter. Find and identify nearly 250 images in Tony King’s delightful illustrations and colorful photographs. And if you are stumped, a complete list of all the images can be found on the last two pages of the book.”
      Alphabet books make wonderful assignments in advanced design courses. Not only do these kinds of projects stretch the imagination but alphabet projects also make impressive additions to any young designer’s portfolio. Above is a book I will use to show students before assigning the project.
