Oooh, I do love my ABC’s. What’s not to love, they look cool, they offer endless design possibilities and the kiddies can learn too. That’s why they adorn all manner of kiddy paraphernalia from baby bedding to building blocks. But the one thing they adorn the most is posters. Alphabet posters are everywhere. Every print designer seems to have at least one ABC poster design in their repertoire. With so many to chose from it can become a tad confusing. So I’ve picked out 7 of the absolute best… no samey boring ones here, just super-duper style for different tastes.
1. Chic: This wooden cut out alphabet wall art is perfect for all you chic mama’s out there. You can hang it or even lean it against a wall – away from little hands of course. This chic number is by Bookhou and costs $50 plus $30 shipping outside the USA.
2. Modern: Fancy a bit of modern alphabet art for your nursery? This colourful print is the one for you then. From LA based Modern Pop on Etsy, it costs $35 with shipping at $12.
3. Vintage: If the vintage-retro vibe is your thing, then this vintage alphabet poster is the coolest I’ve come across. Designed by Agrentinian Sol Linero, the print costs €29 plus €12.80 delivery from L’Affiche Moderne. Tempting!
4. Quirky: Quirky, whacky, call it what you will but this one has bags of fun. Called Burlesque, this ABC poster is a limited edition one and true to American style, it’s a biggie. Designed by Mike Davis it’s available at Richard Goodall Gallery for £50. There’s even a black & white colour your own version for £30.
5. Minimal: Minimalist mama’s rejoice! You can’t get more minimal than this stunning alphabet poster. If you fancy a hint of colour, go for a brightly coloured frame…. your wall may end up looking like it belongs in an art gallery. Wow! This one’s from a shop called Circle Press and costs £54.
6. Scandi style: Leave it to the Scandi’s come up with something so stylish and perfect for kids but without a hint of cutesy. This one’s not a poster though, it’s alphabet wallpaper that’s made to measure. You can go for a feature wall or you can immerse an entire play space in this stylish number. Head to Isak where this costs £38 per square metre. Delivery depends on how much you order.
7. Colourtastic: Neutral tones too dull for you? Is ‘the brighter the better’ your mantra? Then don’t miss this super vibrant ABC poster by Graziela. So bright, you may need to don a pair of sunnies. Drop by Bodie and Fou where this one’s on sale for £22.50 plus £4.95 shipping.
Now I know my A-B-C’s, next time won’t you sing with me… as goes the nursery rhyme. Sorry, can’t get these ABC’s out of my head now.
