Peculiar to the Region: A Field Guide to the Alphabet
Peculiar To The Region – A Field Guide To The Alphabet is a humorous excursion through a jungle of semantic ambiguities inhabited by creatures such as the Angst, the Hubris and the Paradox. The black and white illustrations enhance the deviant nature of language encouraging vacillation between literal and abstract interpretation. Mischievous words abide by rules of their own making and tweak the imagination in the autonomous region between the left and right hemispheres of the brain where the familiar and the absurd peacefully coexist. Where else could one find a bestiary that includes the Gibberish?
Language is a conjurer of image and thought with an endless bag of tricks. My fascination with this magic led me to create this book.
