Alphabet (Hardcover)

Alphabet By Bill Woodrow Cover Image
Not available to order.


B is for Mutant? Z is for Secret? Bill Woodrow's unique alphabet offers a glimpse into a playful and endlessly inventive artistic mind. Part sketchbook, part riddle, this small clothbound book presents Woodrow's weird and whimsical look at letters that turns the ordinary on its head. One of Britain's foremost sculptors, Woodrow (b. 1948) is best known for his transformations of everyday objects into new forms; like those works, the deceptively simple illustrations in this alphabet unravel the common-place to suggest surprising new meanings.
