Here are two examples I threw together using her website for two of my favorite people under the age of 5:
Birds A-Z (£30)
And while I readily acknowledge that these last two prints have been around for a while (and featured in numerous magazines and blogs), I don't think a post on hip and modern alphabet nursery art would be complete without the posters made by Binth and Tara Hogan, each of which has a great retro vibe in colors that are a nice departure from the standard baby's room.
Binth Alphabet Poster ($85)
I remember seeing this poster in an old issue of Blueprint (RIP) and loving it then. I think this color scheme or orange and pale blue would be so lovely and unique in a boy's room. It would coordinate perfectly with Serena & Lily's Ben collection. [Side note: I swear that I'm not stalking nursery catalogues -- Serena & Lily's just happened to show up at my house a few months ago and all the furniture, bedding and accessories were so lovely and so well-designed that I couldn't help but bookmark them.] Binth also makes single letter 5"x5" prints available in this style and I think it would be really fun to spell out your child's name with them -- unless of course your child's name is Sebastian, in which it wouldn't very economical at $24 a letter.
Animal A-Z Poster ($45)
Tara Hogan's work (particularly her letterpress) is just so lovely and well designed and I think the soothing colors and style are particularly appropriate for a child's space. Love it.
