The alphabet has so been done. Or has it? There are hundreds of alphabet books available, but none of them are quite like “Paul Thurlby’s Alphabet.”
Thurlby, who is a graphic artist, brings a new look to letters with his bold illustrations. The artist says he’s inspired by mid-century design and illustration, and that definitely shows in what he describes as “retro-modern” work.
A really is for Awesome when it comes to this book. The images are fun and colorful and have a feel of age about them.
Children will appreciate Thurlby’s humor and parents will love the attention to detail. As a special bonus, the book cover unfolds into a poster featuring all the letters. What a great way to learn the alphabet!
