Graphic Alphabet
Winner Description: 
by David Pelletier, edited by Neal Porter, and published by Orchard Books
Winner Blurb: 

The traditional form of the alphabet book is reinvented using sophisticated computer imagery laced with wit and humor. Each letter is not only represented by a word, image, or concept--it IS the word, image or concept. For example, the letter I is an iceberg, floating in the sea.

"Crisp graphic imagery combined with meticulous layout and design result not in an instructional alphabet book, but in a unique visual experience."
