Anteaters to Zebras
Anteaters to Zebras is a creative, playful, and witty introduction to the alphabet, created by Alan Fletcher, one of the most influential and respected figures in graphic design and a co-founder of the famous design firm Pentagram. Created with Fletcher's grandson in mind, this colorful book expresses the pleasure Fletcher took in turning work and play into the same activity. Children and adults alike will delight in Fletcher's series of brightly colored animals illustrating the letters of the alphabet, and in his infectious sense of fun.
