Written by Vim Nadera

Illustrated by Elmer Borlongan

Award-winning writer Vim Nadera’s poems about Jose Rizal, one for every letter in the alphabet, are interpreted by contemporary Filipino painter Elmer Borlongan in the tradition of letras y figuras, a Filipino art form where the contours of plants, animals, and human figures shape each letter. Borlongan uses the iPad to sketch and paint each letter and poem. What results is a one-of-a-kind book that captures an interplay between tradition and technology, literature and visual art. 

Published in celebration of Rizal's 150th birth anniversary in 2011, Rizalpabeto highlights the national hero's importance and relevance in Philippine history. It is perfect for high school students and can be used as a tool for historical and cultural discovery.
