Event Description

I love to make ABC books… like the kind you see for children, but instead of the usual “A is for Apple,” I like to use obscure words not usually found in a child’s ABC book, like “A is for Anxiety,” “B is for “Bacchanalia,” “C is for Chihuahua,” etc. Please join me in creating this masterpiece of whimsy! 

To be clear: you create one page of anything starting with your letter. The size of your page doesn't matter. 

Then you send me your page and I add it to my ABC book.

Then I photograph/scan the page and post it online for all to enjoy.

Contact me and let me know what letter you want to do, or I can assign you one. I will post the works you send me on IUOMA, and I will also create a special “online show” on a separate blog.

Send work through the mail or digitally.

Bonniediva, my letter T is on the way to you.  This was fun!

I would love to do a page in Braille for your book. A good letter would be “B”,  or “X”if not taken or any other letter is fine as well.

If there is still room I will gladly accept a letter.

Sounds like great fun.  Is J taken?

Hi, nice idea! Give me a letter and page size if you have defined them.

I've already started working on "H is for ..." Thank you Bonnie.

This looks like fun.  I would like the letter T if it's not already taken.  Second choice is the letter C.  If T and C are taken, please assign a letter to me.

I’d love to join!

Please send me a letter, looking forward to creating something about/with it.

Do I understand well that we just have to make a picture to the letter, as in ABC picture books? (Like an Apple, a Bookworm, a Cello, but then a little more obscure)

I am asking because (besides the fact that English is not my native language) in the past there was a project - also in a group here at IUOMA - about Edward Gorey’s in which we could draw/send sceneries, so more than a single object, also to one letter of the alphabet.  (  http://iuoma-network.ning.com/group/the-gashlycrumb-tinies-theme )
