Can't find an "K is for Kunegunda" art print for your little one's nursery? We've got just the thing.
My mother-in-law is amazing at keeping childhood treasures -- we have everything from my husband's toy car collection to original copies of his favorite children's books -- and we treasure this vintage ephemera so.
In this fontastic alphabet, J stands for James... James Bond? I'm in. Especially since I is for Iron Man. I just love the way Helvetica is used to depict some of my favorite super heroes and famous characters, and wow, how great would they be in a cool kid's room?
Alphabet art is everywhere, as Cool Mom Picks readers surely know. We've covered dozens of interpretations of the alphabet from all kinds of artists, but there's always room for another.
I feel like I fall in love with a new alphabet print every week.
We're suckers for anything that turns the alphabet into an art form, and this poster series takes the cake. Not literally, though. C doesn't actually include a cake, although it does have a cuckoo clock, a camel, and California.
Instead of yet another poster for your kids' rooms, I'm kind of digging this take on abc art, from Toronto etsy shop, bookhou at home.
Back when I was pregnant, I became obsessed with finding the perfect artwork to adorn baby M's walls. I had almost no budget and was put off by most everything in the big stores--hearts, butterflies and safaris? Oh my. So I took to Etsy.
Just when I thought an artist couldn't do anything new or inspired to the good old alphabet decor, artist Lorena Siminovich of Petit Collage wows me with her brand new ABC poster prints.
We're kind of in love with Joanne Dugan around here.She's an amazingly prolific photographer, with her work in about a zillion ads, the awesome Taxi Driver Wisdom book, and most importantly to us, a magical series of children's books.
Sure, Z is Zebra. But A is Aardvark, and N is Narwhal. And that's how you win my heart-- with unusual animals and hand-drawn art.
I have a thing for great alphabet posters, as you frequent Cool Mom Picks readers probably know by now. I suppose there's no greater joy to a writer than watching her child find a love for letters and words, and surrounding those babies early can't hurt.
As much as I like modern design, I still want to see a heavy dose of adorable in a baby's room. Thankfully, Switzerland's Nicole of Ocechou does adorable right
It doesn't take much to get me pining for Paris, but Bastille Day turns that urge into a full-on achey craving.
I am utterly taken with the limited edition French alphabet print from Barcelona-born artist Silvia Portella.
I love buying artwork for baby gifts, but the idea of actually taking the time to get something framed is a bit of pain in the postpartum rear. So fortunately CMP (and pretty much every design blog) fave Binth Studio has a new line of wonderful framed prints, at prices that would make you think they're not.
ABC posters are pretty much the quintessential nursery decor, but that's not to say it's easy to find a cool one. I mean, enough with the A is for apple already! So I was happy to discover the modern ABC poster from graphic designer Tahiti Starship
So what do you do when you're a cool, happening, Brooklyn gig poster designer and you're about to have your first kid? Well you don't hit the mall for nursery posters, that's for sure; you design your own. Then you print some more so other people can buy them. Then you tell Cool Mom Picks about it.
Lots of kids go bonkers for bugs. But if you're like me, you'd rather not be collecting those winged suckers in your house, thankyouverymuch. You can keep nature outside and still enable your child to explore the intricacies of living things, with the Butterfly Alphabet Poster.
