About the Book

The limited edition of internationally renowned designer Christoph Niemann's Words features a full cloth case with an exclusive illustration on the front, as well as a collectible silkscreen print inside, numbered and signed by the artist, which is suitable for framing. A beautiful book for fans and collectors.

Everything starts with a love of words! More than 300 words inspired by Dr. Edward Fry’s list of sight words are paired with striking and playful illustrations by internationally renowned designer and artist Christoph Niemann to deepen understanding, enrich, and enlighten those learning to read and write English, whether they be children or adults. This limited edition (approximately 300 copies were printed) includes a full cloth case with an exclusive-to-this-edition illustration on the front, and a collectible silkscreen print inside, numbered and signed by the artist. Christoph Niemann created six motifs in editions of 50. The print has been slipped into a protective sleeve and is suitable for framing.

Homophones, basic punctuation, and an assortment of silly and unusual words are also included to delineate the eighteen sections of the book. Browse the pages to discover words you don’t know (or find a new facet of the ones you do)! Create your own stories or poems by combining words, images, and ideas. Can you think of other words to describe the images, or new drawings to interpret the words? Cover a word with your finger and ask a friend to guess it just by looking at the picture. Or pick a word and draw (or write) what you think happens next. . . . This is an excellent, original, and exuberant teaching tool for parents as well as elementary school teachers, and it will also be useful for ESL programs. Includes an introduction and index, as well as one numbered and signed two-color silkscreen print printed on Munken Pure 170g/m2, 5.5" x 6.5"

Critical Praise

“In a remarkable compilation of more than 300 words, Niemann again proves himself a master of evoking emotions, cause and effect, and other concepts in images drawn in chunky black line. . . . A dynamic exploration of language, saturated with connections for readers to draw and redraw.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[A] delightful, thought-provoking experiment to “celebrate language and art. ...This title is way more than a traditional primer. ...More experienced readers will appreciate the nuance and complexity of some of the renderings. ...Recommended for most collections as well as for classrooms and family time.” —School Library Journal
