Alfabeto Inhabitable By Pedro Friedberg

You know, it's the little differences. Like how everywhere else online that mentions this large, 1979 print by Mexican surrealist Pablo Friedberg calls it Alfabeto Inhabitable, not Halfabeto And how I guess I forgot that the Spanish alphabet doesn't have the letter I, and L is double. Maybe forgot is not quite the right word.

Lot #466: PEDRO FRIEDEBERG (b. 1937): "HALFABETO INHABITABLE", est. $300-500 [stairgalleries.com]

it's missing Q as well... and if it's supposed to represent the Spanish alphabet we were taught in the 70s, then he *also* left out Ñ, Ch, & RR.
