Review of "The Ultimate Alphabet," by Mike Wilks

Review of
The Ultimate Alphabet, by Mike Wilks ISBN 0805001603

Five out of five stars
 This book can be considered the intelligent person’s equivalent of the “I Spy” series of books. The artist/author has created a series of 26 very intricate paintings, one for each letter of the English alphabet. Each image contains a large number of objects that begin with the designated letter for that image.
 Like all such images, some of the objects are easy to discern while others are very hard. Particularly challenging are some of the words that reference the objects. For example, the image for the letter “s” is on the back cover and some of the words ae “sabretache, selachian, siamang, spinode spokeshave, salomonica, and strig.” Of these seven words, four fail the spell checker test.
 If you want a very hard challenge in identifying objects from an image where they are concentrated, this is the book for you.
