funky, modern wall art: Lea’s Alphabets by Grégoire Ganter

After having reviewed vintage inspired design yesterday (see below), I thought it was time to switch to the modern period and review some contemporary pieces of funky children’s design.  I will start today’s posts with a walldecor that’s hip and does not have any of the usual children’s stuff cutesy.  Additionally, it looks great together with the LoJo Ball, which I am also reviewing today.

Lea’s Alphabets by Grégoire Ganter is a great example that shows how kids can have their room decorated in a fresh style, that is entertaining (many details and pictures to watch), educative (children can learn the alphabet, learn that there are different fonts, and associate objects with letters, just as in ‘normal’ alphabet imagery for kids) and timeless (his designs are not only for little one’s, but look also appeal to teenagers. And even many adults, I suppose, would not mind hanging his pictures on the wall). But above all these advantages, his prints just look great! Take a look:

As you could see, there is a huge variety of themes available from the Lea’s Alphabets range, you can have and a-z print composed of just food, for example, or just using one specific color.  Also, you may pick a one letter print, featuring a collage of many objects starting with that letter and many different fonts.  Or perhaps, you just want a single letter-picture combination, maybe to have your child’s initial as the focal point of the nursery.  His prints are also available as postcards, and you may even contact him for custom work, e.g. spelling out your son’s or daughter’s name.  All big prints are available in several different sizes.  They are limited editions of 100 pieces, signed and numbered on the back, and printed on matte, archival paper, so you will have to frame them properly, if you want to enjoy them for years to come.

Available on his website,  a set of 26 a-z postcards for $52, small letter or alphabet print for $200, big prints for $500 (also in-between sizes available).  And one last picture:
