The Letter A, 1982, by Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947)
From The Ultimate Alphabet
Artist Mike Wilks has a challenge for you: “Try to spot an amputee (he is also an athlete although not animate), an abbey, an apricot, an atlas (naming the oceans and continents that you find there), an artilleryman and his ammunition, an aardvark, an autogyro (why should it be upside down?), an ark full of animals, an aerial paled by the distance, and the Egyptian god Anubis and a close colleague.” The list goes on, with a total of 361 items to discover as you puzzle.
From the best-selling book The Ultimate Alphabet (released by Pomegranate in 2015 as The Ultimate Alphabet: Complete Edition), The Letter A is the beginning of an alphabet adventure. Can you find all of the A words depicted here? If not, check out the list and key included inside.
