Abecedarians are poetry forms where usually, each word, line, or stanza of a poem begins with the first letter of the alphabet and continues until the last letter is reached. Examples of abecedarians and alphabet books are collected in this gallery.
Single strip is folded accordion-style to form 54 page surfaces, on every two of which is formed, by cutting of the paper, a lower-case letter of the alphabet (a-m on one side of the strip, n-z on the other).
Collaboration between Judy Sgantas and Claire Van Vliet. This nonadhesive binding is a double alphabet book, with classical Roman letter forms entwined with plant life and insects. For each letter of the alphabet, a black and white image faces a second colored image, revealed by opening an opposing folded leaf. The content is about garden pests -- what attracts or repels them -- and a plant's defenses.
