Alphadoodler by Jan Bajtlik
Alphadoodler is an electrifying activity book that brings letters to life. Developed by award-winning graphic designer Jan Bajtlik, Alphadoodler invites children to take an anarchic approach to the alphabet for their own creative expression.
Packed full with activities for children to draw, scribble, cut, stick, paint and design, Alphadoodler sees letters camouflaged in a messy bedroom and skiing down a mountain; and well-known letter forms morphing into creepy crawlies, impossible skyscrapers, a crocodile’s toothy grin, and even ghost letters, using toothpaste.
Children will delight in the freedom of seeing letters bend, break, hide and slide to become something truly larger than life in this hugely entertaining and imaginative book.
Jan Bajtlik is an award-winning illustrator, graphic designer and typographer based in Warsaw, Poland. His clients include Time Magazine, The New York Times and Gazeta Wyborcza. He has received numerous awards, and was granted the Ministry of Culture scholarship Młoda Polska in 2014.
