Hip Moms & Cool Kids {Alternative ABC’s} Giveaway

When I was contacted by AMMO Books for a chance to check out a new cutting edge Alternative ABC book, I knew it was right up the alley for my little guy! As an avid book lover {and super cool kid =)}, I knew being able to break away from the typical “A is for Apple and B is for Bear” book would be intriguing and fun.

This alternative twist on your traditional ABC board book features original, colorful, and graphic illustrations and typography created by Southern California based designers Eric Ruffing and Dave Parmley of 13THFLOOR.

In this humorous and hipster take on the typical ABC’s for kids, the alphabet here reads: E is for Earth, F is for Flames, U is for Unity, and R is for Reduce*Recycle*Reuse. This ABCs book is not only for funky hip kids, but also earth lovers and future environmentalists!

Aesthetically borrowing from street, surf, skate, and music subcultures, the custom design and typography beautifully spell out this unique alphabet. From Calligraffiti to Pin-Striping, this little book crosses genres and is sure to create a buzz.

The 6X6 chunky book and thick sturdy pages are perfect for those little hands and the bright colored amazing graphics are sure to grab attention.

I know that this book probably won’t appeal to everyone {after all the title is “Alternative ABCs”} but it will please all those unconventional parents on the lookout for funky things for their cool kids.

Ammo Books has graciously offered to send One Hip Follower their own
fun copy of Alternative ABC’s.
