ALLIGATORS ALWAYS DRESS FOR DINNER:
A Vintage Photograph Alphabet Book
by Linda Donigan and Michael Horwitz

Late 19th and early 20th century images are reproduced in sepia duotone for children and collectors. Each two-page spread offers a surprising visual treat: Beholding Beauty - a beautifully dressed and adorned Kikuyu couple; Fluted Fingers - a wandering Japanese Zen monk playing a bamboo recorder; Man and Machine - a proud drill press operator at his station; and Working the Bandwagon - the Cole Brothers Circus Band on an elaborate 1879 Lion and Mirror wagon. A-Z information pages with image details send the reader back for another look.

"Learning to read starts with the alphabet, and opens us up to a world of words and ideas. Reading a photograph can be just as exciting an adventure. A face captivates us with its joyful smile - a foreign place with its exotic landscape - a family portrait presents a picture of the past. With a bit of practice, the story of one moment, captured on film, unfolds before our eyes." the Authors.
