Mike Wilks (British, b. 1947)
The Letter S, 1985
From The Ultimate Alphabet
Surely you can see the saluki, but can you spot the shuttlecock, the stein, or the sifaka? Mike Wilks writes, “There is a sketch of a squinch, a selection of shells (not all from the sea), a siamang settled on a seat, a sponge to be studied, and sundry stuff suspended from strings. In all I included 1,234 S’s for you to see.”
From the best-selling book The Ultimate Alphabet (released by Pomegranate in 2015 as The Ultimate Alphabet: Complete Edition), The Letter S is one of Wilks’s most challenging and intricate compositions. Can you find all of the S words depicted here? If not, check out the list and key included inside.
