A Forest Insect Alphabet features fifty-one original woodcuts drawn and cut by Master Printer Charles Jones. Twenty-six of the images are colour woodcuts of forest insects chosen to represent each letter of the alphabet and accompanied by twenty-three black and white wood engravings. The book features forest insects important for their beauty, impact on the forest environment and intricate ecology. Jones designed and cut capital letters for each insect name, making them an integral part of the compositions. The colours used for each woodcut are based on those of the named insect. A descriptive poetic quatrain, written by Entomolgist Dr. David Kulhavy, is printed below each colour print. The wood engravings also offer a detailed study of the insects and are accompanied by scientific text. Printed on 157 gsm. stock, the book features insects important for their beauty, impact on the forest environment and intricate ecology. The colours used for each woodcut are based on the named insect. The book is 10 inches x 10 inches and comes with an accompanying CD featuring songs about forest insects.
