Cleverly disguised as a children's book, Cubies' ABC is a sweetly subversive introduction to the contemporary art confronting the more traditional 1913 American tastes of the day. Cubies' ABC was ''versed'' by Mary Chase Mills Lyall (1879-1963) and ''pictured'' by her husband, Earl Harvey Lyall (1877-1932), an architect. Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons in the aftermath of the 1913 Armory Show, and reprinted in 2013 by Applewood books, Cubies' ABC succeeds as both an homage to the celebrated 1913 Armory Show and to the well-known genre of the ABC book.
