A Luthier's Alphabet of Imaginary Instruments
Woodcuts and Poems by Fred Carlson

It's Inventive Harp Guitar Builder meets Dr. Seuss!

From the Guild of American Luthiers: 

"From the off-beat imagination of (harp guitar builder) and artist Fred Carlson comes a fanciful collection of alphabet woodcuts and poems, playfully describing rare instruments not seen in your average luthier's shop! These full-color woodcuts are just like the ones that decorated the stage at the last several GAL Conventions.  From Autoharp to Zukulele, they're all here in this sturdy 64-page hardbound book, sure to delight children and luthiers of all ages. Whimsical poems describe each full-page woodcut. It's a unique alphabet that ever luthier (and music fan!) will want to own, and give to kids, grandkids, and friends."

64 pages, 8-3/4" x 8-3/4" hardbound
