A–B–CHEEEESE! | EDITED BY PAUL AND SARAH SCHIEK, DESIGNED BY JASON MUNN
56 pages, 26 four-color plates
8 x 9 in.
A unique and wholly new way to approach the alphabet, A-B-Cheeeese! is a found-photo collection of children doing what children do best, smiling and laughing for the camera. Edited by husband and wife, Paul and Sarah Schiek, the photos challenge the usual "A is for Apple" fare in this nostalgic children's book. Here, C is for Curious, H is for Hello and P is for Piñata!
Curated to provoke conversation, A-B-Cheeeese! is as entertaining for kids as it is for parents reading alongside and explaining that the blue thing with a chord in "H is for Hello" is what a telephone used to look like. The book takes us on a journey to explore a bygone time when the people and objects in a photo held as much of an intriguing importance as the physical photographs themselves.
Designer Jason Munn, renowned for his iconic rock posters, takes over design duties for the project, with his clever and clean type style lending itself perfectly to the genre of children's books.
