Paul Thurlby Alphabet prints
Illustrator Paul Thurlby has put together an alternative alphabet, each letter (and print) representing a different word. So, 'I' for example, shows a beautiful hula girl on a palm tree bedecked island and the letter 'R' has been used to form a cute rabbit. The illustrations have a wonderful retro feel and draw inspiration from lots of different sources from pulp novels to transport posters (as in the 'S' and 'U' images shown above).
The images are available as 12 inch by 9 inch giclee print for £27 each. At the moment there's a buy two and get a third one for free deal on the website, making them ideal presents for all those Toms, Dans and Sues you may have in your life. Delivery is 2 to 3 weeks within the UK so, if you are thinking of getting them as Christmas presents, move quickly!
