Alphabet Books – part 8

Alphabet Books are primarily designed for children. They show the letters of the alphabet with corresponding words and images. They are one of the simplest and most enduring forms of children’s books, a common feature of children’s literature since Shakespeare’s day.

For more background information see part 1, and for earlier examples, see parts 1 - 7 also.
