Just as vibrant and stunning as its companion title (1962 New York Times book of the year Books!) this vintage title by Murray McCain and illustrated by John Alcorn will dazzle and delight in AMMO's updated, reissue edition.  Originally published in 1964, Writing! features charming, hand-drawn illustrations and inventive typography.  Celebrating the beauty of the written word, Writing! explores language, letters, and lovely, lilting literature.  Alcorn's vivid graphics and impressive illustrations illuminate McCain's humorous and imaginative storytelling.

Children are sure to find inspiration to create their own fantastical tales or wordy doodles, as they pore over each page of midcentury design in this new, large format.

"This is a book about Writing: about alphabets and words, and how they came to be, and all the wonderful things you can do with them. Look through its pages and see for yourself why this book is for you!"

Illustrator John Alcorn worked as a commercial artist and designer for Esquire, Push Pin Studios, and CBS Inc., and illustrated numerous children's books in the 1960s and 1970s.
