Museum ABC introduces more than one hundred works art—using the alphabet!

This unique alphabet book features four works of art from different cultures and periods for each letter of the alphabet. Simple words matched with intriguing illustrations provide an opportunity for endless exploration. Children will be fascinated to discover that a boat, a rose, a tree, and even a window can be so different from one another — and from the objects they see every day. Adults will love the visual and cultural richness of this alphabetical tour through the Metropolitan Museum's collection.

An informative fact section at the end of the book provides more details about each piece of art and its creator, including art by luminaries such as Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Edgar Degas, Utagawa Hiroshige, Roy Lichtenstein, Claude Monet, as well as historic pieces from Greece, Egypt, Italy, China, Japan, India, Iran, and more.
