KIRKUS REVIEW

Like a quick taste of a museum, meticulous color renditions of toys, shop signs, needlework and other artifacts represent the 26 letters here, each handsomely framed, initialed, and captioned. A preface gives the source as the Index of American Design (a WPA project); a final page identifies the artists and their subjects. Not essential, but an attractive, brief introduction to folk art and its widely varied media.
