ABC Dream by Kim Krans

A gorgeously illustrated ABC book by the Portland, OR artist who goes by the name The Wild Unknown. Her style is heavy pen and ink with minimal and selective coloring. Each letter is the star of it’s own page, or spread of pages surrounded with and sometimes filled with items that begin with its letter. “F” stands in a bed of ferns, is filled in with feathers, surrounded by fish and fireflies while a fox looks on. “S” is under the sun, filled with stars, surrounded by a snail, strawberry, spider and shells in the sand. Krans dedicates her book to “the inner child”. Makes a great gift for all ages!
