ALPHABET will also include a special opportunity to introduce young people
to contemporary art by literally putting it in their hands:
the 26 pieces will be reproduced in the form of a boxed,
limited edition deck of 52 memory cards that can also function as a “snap” or “go fish” deck.
You can own the original A, B, C and for only $80, take home the entire alphabet deck.
