Talk about Gretchen's ABC

Most striking about this alphabetic primer are its illustrations. Twenty-six objects, with the first letters of their names corresponding to letters of the alphabet, are selected to allow for a more conceptual and less conventional association of letter and object.

For instance, instead of depicting the totality of a flag (for "f"), Simpson composes with the red and white stripes of the American flag and adds a small, triangular field of blue and two stars. The resulting patterns hold the eye's attention until the reader equates "f" (clearly denoted) with "flag" (or "folds," for that matter). But that's an easy one. More difficult for some will be the drawing of Miscanthus blades (leaves) associated with "g" ("grass").

For those who are curious, child or adult, Simpson's drawings will intrigue with their bold patterns that step toward abstraction and their dramatic compositions that compel the viewer to look before seeing. In its intellectual playfulness, its graphic simplicity and quality of its production, this is a sophisticated book, just as one would expect from an illustrator to the New Yorker.
Gretchen Dow Simpson is a fabulous artist - those of you who read the New Yorker in years past may be familiar with her work. Buy this book for yourself and then share it with your child. It's a work of art.
If you are a Gretchen Dow Simpson fan, you will love this book. Don't mistake this for just a children's ABC book, it's not. There is an lovely GDS illustration for each letter of the alphabet or sometimes there is just a glimpse of the item that depicts the letter. You will need to puzzle out a few of the illustrations, but that's the fun of it, right?
