In November of 2008, I approached a number of poets and conceptual writers, asking them to fulfill a series of simple instructions: “On a single sheet of paper in letters approximately one half inch tall write the alphabet from A to Z”.

26 Alphabets (for Sol LeWitt) documents the results of that request, and includes work from Gareth Jenkins, Lorenzo Menoud, Oana Avasilichioaei, Helen Hajnoczky, Robert Fitterman, Donato Mancini, Gregory Betts, Jonathan Ball, Nico Vassilakis, Mark Laliberte, Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl, Christian Bök, Harold Abramowitz, Johanna Drucker, Giles Goodland, Ross Priddle, Gitte Broeng, John Bennett, Crag Hill, Peter Ganick, Jeff Hilson, Peter Jaeger, Nick Thurston, Stephen McLaughlin, Kjetil Røed and kevin mcpherson eckhoff.

26 Alphabets (for Sol LeWitt) is available for order here ($20+shipping for print copies, downloads are free).
