Quodlibet by Sebastian Gievery & Katja Spitzer
Of the twenty-six letters in the English alphabet, the letter “Q” seems to be to be the quirkiest as it masquerades as a “K” sound, squiggly tail and all. To gain a better understanding and appreciation of all things “Q” related, Berlin based illustrator Katja Spitzer and writer Sebastian Gievert have teamed up to create Quodlibet – a carefully curated illustrated encyclopedia of Q-words inspired by French novelist Georges Perec, who made a book centered around letter “E”.
Quodlibet is not your everyday encyclopedia. In fact, it’s quite the opposite as it primarily features colorful and often comical illustrations of queens, quacks, Quentin Tarantino, and other quandaries. Without any question, do yourself a favor and grab a copy from No Brow.
Also available from Amazon and your local book store.
