In 2008, Carol Way Wood created the letters of the alphabet for an exhibition on Martha’s Vineyard. She used graphite pencil and watercolors and paint in a sensitive whimsical style. With the exception of the California Quail, she used birds, animals and plants that exist in her own environment and have special meaning.
It seemed natural to Carol to turn the images into a book. After a few iterations, the help of a great book designer A. Michelle, and a successful KickStarter project the book came out as “A Fine Book of Letters.” The book has been very successful and is now available here and on Amazon.com.
Carol is offering small limited edition prints of the letters. In some cases, she has had requests for new versions of the letters (a masculine version and a feminine version) and those are available here, as well. The letters can also be ordered with personalization, for example: a child’s name and date of birth can be added at the bottom.
