From a sweeping 4 found in the span of an urban bridge to the 13 of a faded crosswalk, this is an intriguing new way to think about numbers and the world around you.
Paintings of objects in an urban setting present the letters of the alphabet.
Through realistic pastels and watercolors, Johnson proposes a new look at theurban landscape, pointing out how letters appear in a variety of places, frominterstates to a simple sawhorse at a construction site. 1996 Caldecott Honorbook. Full-color illustrations.

Be it your school, one from memory, or even a dream school. Then enter and embark on a journey of wonder and delight. Look closely. There's a letter C in the curve of a globe, a little L in the handle of a pencil sharpener, or at recess, a vibrant yellow V in a geodesic climbing dome. Can you find the letters on every page? From inside the classroom to outside on the playground, Caldecott Honor artist and author Stephen T. Johnson renders the ordinary extraordinary with timeless imagery, inviting us to reexamine and rediscover our schools anew, and to find beauty and joy in the most unexpected places.
"A is for Art: An Abstract Alphabet" is a remarkable journey of discovery about art and language through painting, collage, and sculpture by Caldecott Honor artist Stephen T. Johnson. With literal renderings of each letter, complete with witty titles and playful, alliterative captions, Johnson's abstract art forges connections between words, objects, and ideas.
Can you find the hidden letters? Look closely and you will see a letter "C" made of colorful candy, a letter "H" hidden in a hook, and an "S" in a soft shadow. From A to Z, each stunning, original work of art will stimulate the imagination and creativity of children and adults alike.
It's a book, a toy, and a robot This build-it-yourself book that
Newsweek "called "Toy of the Year" is all of these things and more.
From the bestselling author of Everything Bad is Good for You, Steven Johnson's The Invention of Air tells the incredible story of scientist and radical Joseph Priestley, who invented soda water, discovered oxygen, and incited rioting with his political views. In 1794, Joseph Priestley - amateur scientist, ordained minister and radical thinker - set sail for America to escape persecution. Steven Johnson tells his incredible story: the discovery of oxygen, the invention of a science, the founding of a church, and, with the great minds of his time, the development of the United States itself. But Priestley's revolutionary ideas put him in terrible danger. Johnson uses the progress of Priestley and his colleagues not merely to describe the wonder of discovery, but to show us how we have come to understand the world, how far we have travelled with the power of human enquiry - and how one man's curiosity can help build an entire country. 'A shot of the purest oxygen' Simon Winchester 'Packed with excellent stuff' Russell Davies 'Entertaining ... clear-sighted and intelligent' New Yorker 'As full of ingenuity and as delightful as its subject' Financial Times 'Brilliant' The New York Times 'Johnson paints Priestley not as a man of the past but precisely the sort of figure the world needs more than ever' New York Post Steven Johnson is the author of the acclaimed books Everything Bad is Good for You, Mind Wide Open, Where Good Ideas Come From, The Ghost Map, Emergence and Interface Culture. His writing appeared in the Guardian, the New Yorker, Nation and Harper's, as well as the op-ed pages of The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. He is a Distinguished Writer In Residence at NYU's School Of Journalism, and a Contributing Editor to Wired.
