Illustrator Nigel Sussman, a winner in the Upper Playground Walrus Drawing Contest, will self-publish his first book, Alphabet Compendium; An Illustrated A-Z of Things. The Berkeley, CA resident is creating an extensive illustrated alphabet book of objects, as all twenty-six letters will have an original visual representation. Sussman states, “The entire book is basically a giant visual alliteration”.
Creating an Alphabet book has been a goal of Sussman’s for several years. With the first four letters complete, the artist continues to work through illustrations for the 22 remaining letters. Nigel has launched a Kickstarter campaign, where he explains his vision for the book and gives people the opportunity to contribute to the project.
