Tallinn. Estonian ABC-books

01.09.2005

From 1 September to 5 October an exhibition about Estonian ABC-books is open in the main exhibition hall of the National Library of Estonia.
The exhibition showing the more than 400 years of Estonian ABC-books was organised by the Estonian Institute and compiled by Krista Kumbeg, Helle Remmelt and Tiina Ritson. ‘Estonian ABC-books’ was designed by Lennart Mänd.
The exhibition does not present pictures about the first ABC-books, because they have not survived. The bulk of the material thus begins with the 19th century. Also depicted is the children’s TV series ‘Teddy and the ABC-book’ (‘Mõmmi ja Aabits’) — the favourite of almost all generations of Estonian children, brought up in the TV era.
After the National Library the exhibition will go abroad.
