Description
"The Apocalypse Alphabet" is an abecedarian book written in rhyme by Gayle Madeira and Artem Maloratsky. It is illustrated by Gayle Madeira in the distinctive black and white illustration style made famous by Edward Gorey. Inspired by Gorey's book "The Gashleycrumb Tinies", the subject matter is not for children but rather for adults as it centers on the challenges presented by anthropogenic climate change. With tongue-in-cheek humor and a nod to groups such as doomers and preppers, the book touches on many climate disasters that are either currently upon us or are looming due to human action and inaction. The underlying purpose for the book is to raise awareness about the climate crisis and to provide additional information to assist people in whatever direction they want to go once they have this awareness. On this site you can learn how to take action, get support if you are feeling anxious, or learn more about the climate crisis.
