‘Sin creates [ an inclination ] to sin; it engenders vice by repetition of the same acts. This results in perverse inclinations which cloud conscience and corrupt the concrete judgement of good and evil. Thus sin tends to reproduce itself and reinforce itself, but it cannot destroy the moral sense at its root. ’-- Para. 1865, Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1994.


`An Illustrated Alphabet for the Illiterate is a fun little book that is playfully written by a talented author and his talented daughter. The glimpses of stories on each page may not deliver a moral or a point, in fact, many seem to hardly even make sense. But they do make sense, if only in that they simply celebrate the experience of writing. And in turn, they encourage Kurz`s ever present theme of perception. This book won`t teach you how to lose weight, make a million dollars, or become a better person, it won`t even teach you how to spell correctly. The authors of the book don`t make any claims or promises, and in failing to do so, are able to offer a book that reminds its readers of writing`s most important purpose: to entertain. `
