Product Description

About the Author

Stephen T. Johnson is a highly versatile American artist whose art spans a broad range of concepts, contexts and mediums including painting, collage, drawing, sculpture and installations and can be seen in museum and gallery exhibitions, public art commissions, and through his original award-winning children s books.
Much of Johnson s work is characterized by an interest in the alphabet and language, which began with his book"Alphabet City," a Caldecott Honor and"New York Times"Best Illustrated Book of the Year. His most recent engagement with the alphabet is his ongoing series of literal abstractions which are the subject of his book"A is for Art: An Abstract Alphabet," also a"New York Times"Best Illustrated Book of the Year, and featured in several solo museum and gallery exhibitions."

Format: Hardcover
My kindergarten classes love to look at this title again and again. Some of the letters are less obvious making it a challenge for some to see the letter.
