    It was love at first sight when I first saw this alphabet (in a previous post) , and forwarded the info to several other kindred artists here in the US. The unanimous opinion was: “THIS should be a book!”. Thanks to this blog, I have ordered other books by Alice — and can’t wait to have this one in my art library as well. I love her buoyant and fresh rendition of any topic — but this alphabet is “extra” in my estimation.
