Alphabet Book


This second printing of the 1968 alphabet book by the kids of Kettle Point First Nation, an Ojibway I.R. in Southwestern Ontario, could not be more perfect. With lettering reminiscent of Imre Reiner and drawings that’re too cool for school, this one could also not be more special. Originally a Christmas keepsake from the University of Toronto Press, it was selected as one of the AIGA Fifty Books of the Year and this is the later trade edition (which is identical to the first printing except the removed note about Christmas). Watch a flip-through of another copy here.

  • Illustrators: Children of the Kettle Point Indian Reserve
  • Size: 8.25 × 5.625 inches
  • Pages: 64
  • Binding: Paperback
  • Condition: Cover very lightly soiled and marked. It’s really pretty minor, but we should mention. The pics show some creasing mid-page, but these are actually from another copy and we’re too lazy to reshoot. This current copy is totally clean and crease-free inside.
  • Publisher: University of Toronto Press, 1968; Second printing 1969
