One late night I found myself digging deep to recall my repertoire of lullabies. I was brand new to the mommy job and attempting to sooth my wee one to sleep. Thankfully, a simple hum to the ABCs hit a home run and has ever since. From that night forward, I’ve become obsessed with the ABCs. Partly because letters make amazing wall art (as seen here) but mostly because my sweet baby is now a growing toddler. Letters excite him and it’s an amazing thing. So when we received the colorful children’s book, Alphabetica, my 3 year old’s entire face lit up with joy.
Diana Spieker has always had a passion for poetry. After the birth of her son James, she was encouraged by her husband to compile a little something for baby. While sharing her latest project with friend and graphic designer Krista Skehan, the two dreamt up a visionary ode to the alphabet both unique and self-published via Personify Press.
The playfulness of Diana’s poetic phrases is guaranteed to add variety to the bedtime book routine. Simply put, it engages children and parents alike. Krista’s rich and colorful illustrations enables the words to magically dance off the page. Their successful tribute to the alphabet has been taken a step further through their clever offerings of illustrated placemats, postcards and posters.
The duo are now successfully selling Alphabetica online and in stores such as potterybarn kids nationwide.
WIN IT! The Alphabetica package includes (2) signed copies of Alphabetica, (1) set of four placemats, (1) package of postcards and (1) custom designed poster featuring art from the book.
