"Inspired by Bewick era printer's alphabets made for children, I was amused by the efficiency of space, meaning to fit the 'alphabet' on the page, they often removed a few letters. They also, to me, seemed to encompass quite esoteric references for each letter, which again amused me at the thought of the child supposed to learn the letters from these. This one is for the food lover, equally as incomplete and esoteric as the originals."
