Anthon Beeke's famed Alphabet consists of a collection of photos of women's bodies intertwined and linking together to form letters of the alphabet and punctuation marks. Published as a Quadrat Print, Alphabet was part of a series of experimental graphic design publications edited by Pieter Brattinga and given away by the Hilversum printer de Jong from the early fifties to the mid-seventies. Each one was ten inches square, mostly several stapled pages but some were loose leaf sheets (this alphabet) in a box or folder.
