The Sunday Showcase Party w/ Charley Harper & Patrick Hruby Products From Ammo Books {No.35}

Welcome to The Sunday Showcase Party!


I am pleased to welcome back
Ammo Books

this week with another fantastic giveaway.

I was drawn to Ammo Books last July when they sent my little guy a copy of Alternative ABC’s. My little guy adores books and the one of a kind eclectic mix of fun and exciting books published by Ammo is right up our alley. Their style is cool and hip and their titles have become some of our favorites.

Ammo recently sent out a few new released products from their WINTER KIDS’ catalogue and I not only approve them, but the little guy does too!

The first two releases are from illustrator Charley Harper; an American original and one of my all time favorites. He is beloved for his delightful, graphic and often humorous illustrations of nature, animals, insects and people alike. Charley liked to say, that when he paints a bird, he doesn’t count all the feathers in the wings – he just counts the wings. Minimal realism, he called it, and his unique and precise style continues to resonate and inspire his admirers.

Charley Harper’s whimsical and well-loved illustrations are featured here on this classic set of nesting blocks. The alphabet and numbers 1 through 10 are expressed with Charley’s colorful animal illustrations that wrap around the surface of each of the 10 nesting blocks. When completely stacked, the blocks stand almost 3 feet tall, and when they nest, they become a compact 6 x 6 x 6 inches square. These Charley Harper Nesting Blocks are interactive, decorative, and a great addition to the existing line of Charley Harper books and toys for kids. Perfect for brightening any nursery room!

CHARLEY HARPER NESTING BLOCKS can be found at Ammo Books online {here} or Amazon {here}

This new Charley Harper Coloring Book focuses exclusively on his delightful and plentiful illustrations of birds. Charley’s beloved birds are gracefully translated here into 32 black-and-white line drawings for young, budding artists to interpret in their own color palettes. As a reference, the back cover shows every one of the 32 images featured in their full-color original versions. Each drawing is printed on white paper on one side only to help keep markers from bleeding through to another image. Each page is also perforated at the top, for easy removal to place your young artist’s drawing on the wall or refrigerator! I love the idea of being able to let my little guy re-create one of these original masterpieces.

CHARLEY HARPER COLORING BOOK OF BIRDS can be found online at Ammo Books {here} as well as Amazon {here}

The second two releases are from Los Angeles-based illustrator Patrick Hruby. I simply adore the whimsical nature and playful vibrant colors you can find in each of his pieces. Patrick began studying math and physics before attending the renowned Art Center College of Design to pursue a career as an illustrator. His interest in the geometry of nature is central to his work.

ABC IS FOR CIRCUS, a chunky board book, celebrates the colorful and festive world of the circus through each letter of the alphabet. ABC IS FOR CIRCUS is an awesome addition to Ammo’s artist-centric line of ABC books and is sure to delight an audience of children and adults alike.

The colors are simply amazing in each whimsical image and the memorizing letters are a delightful alternative to your typical A is for Apple.

ABC IS FOR CIRCUS by Patrick Hruby is available to order from Ammo Books {here} as well as Amazon {here}

Patrick Hruby’s bold and imaginative illustrations are also showcased in the timeless memory game. I still love playing memory and this is such a fresh artistic spin on a classic that all ages can enjoy.

PATRICK HRUBY MEMORY GAME is available at Ammo Books {here} and Amazon {here}
