Letter Art, AlphaBooks: A is for Anderson



Horse Show
C.W. Anderson
Harper 1951

In honor of his body of work rather than this particular book, which has more catastrophic falls that I wish to contemplate at the moment. C. W. Anderson’s Favorite Horse Stories & C. W. Anderson’s Complete Book of Horses and Horsemanship were fixtures on my childhood bookshelf. I remember staring at the covers more than I recall reading the books. I guess I was imagining a day when I would need to know about horses & horsemanship. The weirdly talismanic behavior of a horse-crazy kid in the middle of Manhattan.


Cover images from Good Reads & Amazon.

Since Anderson does not have an author website, two About pages: Author Factsheet & Pony Mad Booklovers.

Bought from Robin Bledsoe, antiquarian horse books and art books.
