A Welsh Alphabet by Lorin Morgan-Richards is, like so many things Welsh, a lot more than it may first appear. First, it is an introduction to the Welsh language and alphabet. It is also an introduction to the rich resource of myth and legend that formed the basis for the Welsh way of life and informs the Welsh culture of today.


Each letter has a stanza where reference is made to a character from Welsh legend. Thus for poet weaves a rich tapestry of Welsh heritage, using a style reminiscent of the Bardic teacher or medieval troubadour teaching us the name of the Gods and men through rhyme and meter. Alongside each letter is an illustration made by a varied group of talented artists. Each one has touched the Awen in his or her own unique way.
