Alphabet Art, a set of 26 individual prints to hang in a child's bedroom or nursery comes with a delightful book of poems for bedtime reading.
Each 'square' (one for each letter of the English alphabet) has been reproduced from original oil paintings by Kāpiti artist, Austin Whincup.
The original illustrations were painted on ice-cream container lids as a gift from Austin to his newborn nephew.
Inspired by the images, Wellington poet and playwright Moira Wairama responded to the paintings by writing a short poem using word play for each of the letters, developing 26 rich stories, expanding the thinking-realm already stimulated by the unique artwork.
Packaged as a set, the alphabet squares and the book of poems make a wonderful gift for child and parent alike.
