Children’s ABC books in the 1970s taught us about a warm and innocent world through wonderful hand-painted imagery of animals, toys and quaint household objects. Unfortunately, we all grew up and became paranoid, cynical adults filled with fear and hatred. But don’t despair, this new book will help guide you and your family through this difficult phase of your existence. It parodies the classic ABC books from yesteryear, twisting the meaning of innocent childlike words into hysterically funny yet terrifying adult themes. Each page is beautifully illustrated by award winning artist Toby Leigh in the exact same whimsical style as the original children’s books from the 1970s.
Should you decide to purchase ABC for adults, it is recommended that you read and practice the words in the book as often as possible in order to nurture a well-formed pessimistic and angry outlook.
A big thank to everyone who has pledged so far. Still a fair way to go, so would be great if everyone could share the project with as many people as they can, and help more confused adults come to terms with their existence.
Creative Boom have written a nice piece about the project. Take a look here:
