Chapel Hill artist, Dr. Pamela George, and Triangle-area calligrapher Dr. Walter M. Brown have created a North Carolina Alphabet, consisting of one painting of each letter of the alphabet. Each picture bears the image of an animal, plant, place, or thing that can be found in the state. When put together the painting measures a mural-sized eight feet wide by six feet tall. Since the painting's completion, Carolina Wren Press has turned it into a children's book which will be published in September 2005. The publishing company will also publish a learner's poster of the alphabet for home and classroom use.
