MEDIA REVIEWS
Fabric designer Jane Foster's ABC is a collection of gorgeous images for the different letters of the alphabet which will make a perfect introduction to learning the alphabet when the time is right. -- Julia Eccleshare * The Guardian Online *
For us, there's nothing more satisfying than a quality ABC book and this is a refreshingly different offering.Textile artist, Jane Foster brings us a beautifully bold, retro-inspired trip through the alphabet.With the use of vivid colour and thick black lines, each object immediately jumps off the page. It features both the traditional and some of the less obvious ABC's, such as this sumptuously coloured armadillo.Foster's clever and sympathetic selection of palette, coupled with the luxuriously shiny finish on each image, makes this durable board book a perfect gift for a toddler or emerging reader.The tactile nature of this book, makes it almost impossible to put down.The cleverly selected muted tones of the backgrounds against the vibrant colours of the main image, makes this a visually strong book and in turn, a great introduction for a younger audience, to their ABC's.Easily identifiable imagery, with a strong, stylish graphical element will win over its youngest and oldest readers.Adults will appreciate the style and children will thoroughly enjoy getting to grips with these bright and bold ABC's. -- Sarah Yewman * Picturebooksblogger *
A beautiful alphabet primer from the textile designer, no wonder this board book is something you won't mind left lying around on the sofa. -- Justine Crow * Families South East London magazine *
First word books are a lovely introduction to sharing books with your baby and what better than this fabulously stylish book that will appeal to adults as much as children. Starting with "A is for armadillo", which makes a refreshing change from apples, the pages show different pictures for every letter of the alphabet. The letters are shown in upper and lower case and at the end of the book is a collection of all the items in a wonderfully colourful grid filling a full page.What makes this book special is the design; bright and vibrant, full of different colours and patterns filling the backgrounds of the pages. Jane Foster's unique, bold-lined drawings stand out, glossy prints against matt pages which add a subtle tactile element. The kind of pages that are so satisfying to run your hand over.My one-year-old enjoys looking through this book to find pictures he likes so he can practice saying the words, sounds or actions. The lion is his definitely his favourite and he loves doing his best "ROOOAR!" when he spots it. He's also started finding things in his toy box to match up with the pictures, a great activity to do with a book like this.A gorgeous and beautifully produced book, it would make a perfect present for a new baby, one to treasure for many years. * Acorn Books *

“Beautiful, bold, sturdy board books”

The retro style design and bright, bold colours are what make these books fantastic. The images are great for keeping young ones interested and are a bit different to your traditional ABC books. I buy these as gifts... More
