Numbered and signed copy 

Alphabet consists of 26 volumes, exactly the number of letters in the Roman alphabet. Each volume proposes 97 distinct combinations of 26 letters, producing a total of 2522 different alphabetical series. These letters succeed one another in small writing in a horizontal line that scores the middle of every page. Alphabet’s sequences defy all alphabetical understanding and, now and again, thanks to the reader's contribution, a random fragment offers a recognizable word. The only series in alphabetical order runs on the spine of each volume, laboriously, yet playfully hand-written by a young four-year old girl.
