A whimsical ABC book for ’Toon Fans and Art Nerds
Back when dinosaurs ruled the earth… I attended Pratt Institute (1976-1980) as an Illustration and Graphic Design Major. There was a little book project we did in one of My design classes in 1978, Typography with the renowned and excellent Ray Barber The design assignment was an Artist’s Alphabet book. “A is for ART” was that student project. The original work was badly damaged in a catastrophic house fire in 2000.
The Digital Restoration is a continuation of an electronic incarnation of a “Rainy Day Project” that I had wanted to do since the Winter of 2001, and by 2005 finally gathered the digital tech in hand to do. So the project now lives re-imagined and revived in a hardbound edition with artist commentaries.
