By Victor Stabin
“Inamorato Inamorata” is another illustration from Victor Stabin’s unique ABC book, Daedal Doodle. Daedal Doodle’s 26 dictionary-driven characters catapulted Victor’s creativity into writing and animation. In addition, because the book is dictionary driven, he was asked to teach classes about the making of the book. He’s taught these classes for 5th grade through college students, teachers in teaching colleges, and he even taught a class at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Daedal Doodle has been self-published twice. The second edition is an extravagantly high-quality product, way beyond the expense of any publisher’s budget. It comes with a poster, has foldouts, the binding is stitched not glued, the covers are embossed—all this and more—printed on extra heavy paper.
