Abecedarios : Mexican Folk Art ABCs in English and Spanish
by Cynthia Weill and K. B. Basseches and Moisés Jiménez




Overview -

Every ABC book worth its cover price is bound to have bright colors and big letters. But not every ABC book has magical hand-carved animals to illustrate every letter. And very few alphabet books present those letters in more varieties than English Very few alphabet books except the ABeCedarios, that is In this brightly colored book, the alphabet is presented in both Spanish and English, and includes the four additional letters--and whimsical animals--that make the Spanish alphabet so much fun.

The famous folk artists, brothers Mois s and Armando Jim nez, carved the wonderful animal figures that illustrate each letter in ABeCedarios. Working with their wives and children in the beautiful village of Arrazola in Oaxaca, Mexico, they carved and painted each enchanting animal by hand. For many centuries, people in Oaxaca have carved wood to make toys and household objects. However, it was Mois s and Armando's grandfather Manuel who started making animal figures. Now more than sixty families in Arrazola make their living from wood carving.

K. B. Basseches is an artist, photographer, and art educator. She was an assistant professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Department of Art Education, and served as a staff photographer at the Smithsonian Institution in the Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. Basseches has exhibited throughout the mid-Atlantic region and in the Los Angeles area. She lives in Richmond, Virginia, with her young son and husband.
