From Aubergine to Zemi, this whimsical, non-phonetic tour of the English alphabet features the intricate quilts of Virginia artist Eleanor Labiosa.
An alphabet book with a difference, your child will learn new words and their observation skills will be tested to find the 26 hidden letters intricately hidden throughout the beautiful quilts.
About the Authors
This book started on a night shift at an outback Australian mine in 2009. Will was using the phonetic radio (Alpha, Bravo) to talk to his teammates in large mining trucks, when he challenged himself to find a quirky alternative. The first dozen letters were solved
quickly, but for the rest, he needed help! In 2014, Will was joined in this international word search by his now-wife Katie and Katie’s family friend, Eleanor. Will and Katie hope these pages inspire you to explore different sounds from different cultures and imagine new words.
About the Quilter
From Eleanor’s first mud pie to her latest creation, her artistic endeavours have always fed from nature’s cornucopia whether expressed in paint, wax, wood, or fiber. She happily tackled this project because quirky spelling has always come naturally to her. Eleanor is currently working to lure her progeny (three children, four grandchildren and two great grandchildren), back to her family roots in Virginia’s lovely Shenandoah Valley where she once again resides.
