Paul Thurlby's Alphabet

Paul Thurlby's Alphabet
by Paul Thurlby
Templar Books, 2011. 

What started out as a personal project quickly became viral as artist Paul Thurlby posted his new alphabet letters online as he made them, creating lots of buzz and interest in design and illustration communities due to his attractive, creative "transformed letters." It is only appropriate to begin such a book with the letter "A" and that letter, respectively, standing for "awesome." That one word sums up the entire book! Filled with beautiful "retro modern" styled illustrations of each letter of the alphabet, Thurlby brings a crisp graphic design edge to his playful take on the alphabet. This is an excellent choice for parents wanting an alphabet book that has a very prominent visual approach.
