The Cockney Alphabet by Paul Bommer

Cockney Alphabet

Packed full of details and hidden jokes, The Cockney Alphabet print by Paul Bommer deserves some closer inspection. 

Sometimes known as the Surrealist Alphabet, this alphabet dates to the late 1920s and is makes the most of the pun-based humour behind it, from A for 'Orses on. Plenty of local details have made their way into the print. The poor man illustrated in 'P for Relief has found himself outside the now-closed public conveniences on Petticoat Lane for example. 

The A2-sized print is limited to an edition of fifty, and cost £145 each.
