A for Awesome. Paul Thurlby

It’s been almost a year since I posted about Paul Thurlby's illustrated number series and since then his alphabet collection has also become very popular. I bought a beautiful signed print last week, “A for Awesome”, at the Tate Modern Gallery, which I discovered is also available on his website

"The inspiration for my work comes from mid-century design
and illustration. My style has been described as being 
retro-modern. The aesthetics are retro and the
subject matter is modern. I use old books, postcards and 
pieces of paper for the backgrounds to my illustrations 
which often, for example, involves buying an old book from 
a charity shop just to use its back cover.”
