L'Esprit de la Lettre [The Spirit of the Letter] - Lapointe, Denise and Pierre F - 2004. 
Montreal: les editions du silence, 2004. Fine. 14 of 26 copies. The artists began working on this project in June of 2002 and did not complete the edition until nearly two years later. This is an unusually long period of time given the small number of the edition, though it can easily be understood given the detail and craftsmanship of this work of art. Contains a booklet for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. The booklets are housed in an attractive custom made file box with a removable lid. Each book is filed in order alphabetically within the box. Thick handmade paper is accordion folded to create a separate compartment for each letter. Each book represents its letter differently with various papers, fonts, binding styles, cutouts, movables, and pop-ups. For example, the book for 'W' is stab bound in black paper wrappers with 'W' printed in a pattern on the front wrapper. The interior page is bright orange and is folded to create a pocket which holds a large, removable, black paper W. An artistic and innovative exploration of the alphabet. ARTB/100616.
