Not available


An address book that celebrates rural life with art by New England illustrator extraordinaire, Mary Azarian. Sturdily bound with a concealed spiral binding, this is the perfect way to keep track of everyone you know--in the city or country.

This address book features scenes of rural life from Mary Azarian's A Farmer's Alphabet to open each alphabetical section. The letter A opens with an image of apples being picked from a tree. The letter D is a dog asleep in a cozy armchair. F is a scenic view of a farm amongst the hills. J is kids jumping into a hay mound. N is neighbors chatting over a picket fence. Lined pages are ready for the names of family and friends.

Mary Azarian created the prints for A Farmer's Alphabet while a teacher in one of Vermont's last one-room schoolhouses. In the late 1970s, the state board of education commissioned her to create a rural alphabet, a series of bold red-and-black woodcut prints featuring the letters, A to Z, and depicting scenes from Vermont life. Published as a book by Godine, Smithsonian Magazine said, "No matter where children live - on a farm, in the suburbs or the city - they will love this handsome book." The Boston Globe said, "A beautiful gift; a treasure to own."

This address book is the perfect way to store all those addresses of friends and family--there's even a section for temporary addresses of all your wandering loved ones.
