I only got this book a few days ago and it’s already found its way into my favourites! I’ve always thought Alphabet books were quite special as they are, in a way, the first book. Bruno Munari’s ABC is clever and witty, first published in 1960 its playful use of colours and textures is so refreshing and inspiring.


I was showing it to my illustrator friend earlier today and she fell in love too, it’s definitely a book to keep close at hand and dip into for inspiration.


C for a Crow

L for a Long Leaf, a Leaf, a Little Leaf and a Lemon

O for an Owl and an Onion and an Orange

And my absolute favourite:

W for a Watermelon on a Wagon with a Wooden Wheel
