Artful illustrations spell out ‘Alpha BET’ show at Leatherby Libraries
A special reception for the artist and alumnus whose work is currently on display in the Leatherby Libraries exhibition Alpha BET will be held at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the Henley Reading Room on the second floor of Leatherby Libraries. The event is free and open to the public.
Teacher and illustrator Alex J. Rajic ’09 (C.L.A.D.) first conceived the idea of illustrating and writing a Hebrew alphabet book for children after finishing his undergraduate work. After earning his teaching credential at Chapman, he completed the book project and published it in 2010 through his own publishing company, Cenozoic Press.
His illustrations, along with those of Michael Hafftka, who uses Hebrew letterforms as the basis for his watercolors, make up the Alpha BET exhibit on display in the Henley Reading Room.
