Quantifying the importance of the Sundance Film Festival is difficult. Every year, films screened there become classics, and are made by filmmakers who become legends.

This year, in a valiant attempt to commemorate the Festival’s magnitude in a format that fits the palm of your hand, artist Todd Oldham has edited an art book called Sundance Film Festival A to Z. Inside, each letter of the alphabet is tackled by a talented artist whose task was to combine several iconic Sundance people, films or events, linked by a single letter, into one image. For example, take the letter N, shown above. Artist Jean Kim combined Napoleon Dynamite with Christopher Nolan (along with Shirin Nesat) for a very cool image.
