Paul Thurlby's Awesome Alphabet
Fun fact about the etymology of alphabet-it comes from the names of the first two letters (Middle English alphabete, from Late Latin alphabetum, from Greek alphabētos, from alpha + bēta beta First Known Use: 1513).
I like T for Trapeze and O for Owl the best. You can buy your own copy, or prints of individual pages, online here. They are pricey individually so if you want to use them for a nursery decoration, you are better off purchasing the whole book for $9-14. He also created numbers, flash cards, and many other prints in his signature style.
I'm not sure yet what I'll do with my book. The only thing I can think of is use them as inserts in binders with clear fronts. Any other suggestions? Keep in mind my boys are teenagers and wouldn't welcome alphabet decor, so I probably won't frame the pages. Perhaps I should keep it intact for visiting little ones.
Thanks for stopping by and keep living the qute life!
