Review:
From one spiritual and twenty-five poems by African Americans, carefully chosen excerpts introduce the poets rather than the letters. The ABCs are the unconventional strand upon which Bryan strings the varying voices of the poets. Bryan's vivid, full-page paintings capture the essence of the excerpts rather than illustrating objects to go with the letters. A most original, meaningful, beautiful union of words and pictures.
