For children seeking their first book of poetry, or adults looking to rediscover a language they have lost, this playful reimagining of an ABC book is for youngsters of all ages. Written for and dedicated to the authors’ children, these poems are love letters to the English language, drawing on avant-garde poetic traditions to celebrate the sounds and imagery of letters and words as they emerge into meaning. Moving through the alphabet – each letter illustrated with a beautiful collage – this book is a journey through the foundations of our language.
