What letter does the word bee start with?

If you said "B" you're right - in English!

But in many, many languages, it actually starts with A.

Bee is Anu in Igbo.

Ari in Turkish.

Aamoo in Ojibwe.

And Abelha in Portuguese.

Come and explore the gorgeous variations in the ways we talk about familiar things, unified and illuminated through Ellen Heck's eye-catching, graphic scratchboard details and hidden letterforms.
