  'An ABC of contemporary illustrators...' 

This was a charity project commissioned by the Dyslexia Institute and
   originally undertaken in 1997, to coincide with the Institute's 25th anniversary.
   Initially seven artists were invited to depict seven letters of the alphabet in
   their own unique and individualistic way. Then it snowballed into a charity
   book project with twenty six artists contributing...

   Most contributors illustrated the letter approprite to their surname, thus
   Raymond Briggs depicted the letter 'B'
