Book Reco: The Ultimate Alphabet

May 25th, 2009 · 3 Comments

Atanu Dey gifted Abhishek (on his fourth birthday) the most amazing book I have ever come across —  “The Ultimate Alphabet” by Mike Wilks (WikipediaAmazon). It is a collection of 26 paintings, one for each letter of the alphabet. Each painting comprises many objects starting with the specific letter – the A painting has 361 objects beginning with that letter, while S has 1,234. You have to see it to believe it! A book worth having for kids of any age.

    At the top of the page for “F” there’s a banner with these numbers:

    “1 1 2 3 4 5 8 13 14 15 21 34 40 50 55 89 144 233 377 610″

    I thought that was clever. Guess why.

    is it that the bold numbers are odd one`s in the Fibonacci series?

    Yes, the bold numbers are spelled with an “F” and the remaining numbers are from the Fibonacci series.
