What letter does the word bee start with?

If you said "B" you're right – in English!

But in many, many languages, it actually starts with A.

Bee is Anū in Igbo,

Aamoo in Ojibwe,

Abelha in Portugese.

And Ari in Turkish.

Come and explore the gorgeous variations in the ways we talk about familiar things, unified and illuminated through Ellen Heck's eye-catching, graphic scratchboard details and hidden letterforms.
