An Alphabet by Peter Blake.

An Alphabet by Peter Blake

Glenn makes fun of me for ordering this book but I love it.

The word alphabet comes from the Greek alpha and beta - the first two words of the Greek alphabet. The Greeks took this from the Phoenician alphabet which meant ox and house respectively. So when you scream "Show us your alphabet" at someone you love, you're actually shrieking "Show us your ox-house". Something to bear in mind when the moment sweeps you.
