"From the alphabet, with Just twenty-six, letters, A to Z, all words are made." Here are the letters --A, a; here is the word -- almost; here is the verbal meaning, the equivalent -- nearly; here is the visual meaning, the concept -- nearly all red, a double-page nine-tenths red (with a white strip running down the right-hand edge). And so it goes, each letter represented by a relational word, each word exemplified by the relationship of abstract forms in penetrating colors. (One regret: in two instances -- y. only w. whole -- the letter is used unphonetically.) This is Primary communication stunningly presented, with artistic antecedents from Mondrian and Malewitsch to Albers, and a bright Future in introducing children to abstract concepts and aesthetic quality, in addition to letters and words. We read, we see, we understand, we abzorb.
