A Is for Adultery, Angst, and Adults Only

Front Cover
Workman Publishing, Jan 1, 2002 - Art - 64 pages

Attention adults. Announcing a new book--a very personal book, in fact a decidedly quirky book--from Sara Midda, renowned artist of singular talent and author of In and Out of the Garden, Sara Midda's South of France, Sara Midda's Baby Book, and Growing Up and Other Vices.


Beguiling and whimsical and enigmatic, A is for Adultery is an alphabetical entertainment for grown-ups. Each spread considers a letter, weaving words through dazzling miniatures and vignettes. Some words are obvious; some hidden. (Some naughty.) It is a great pleasure to look, even more so to seek.


C is for crayon, crotch, claustrophobia. M for melon, masochist, melancholy, and man. Filled with charming little figures and painted with Midda's exquisite watercolor wash, here is a rare and wonderful marriage of humor and beauty--a treasure of fine things that is both a gift and a game.
