Delightfully Dark Alphabet Prints by Jennifer French

Artist Jennifer French's lushly illustrated alphabet prints recall fairy tales and folklore with their subtly sinister undertones — a style that is a gorgeous and refreshing contrast to the the sugary sweet innocence most often associated with childhood and especially appealing as All Hallows' Eve approaches.

We loved Jennifer's sensibility in decorating her twin boys' room which we toured last year, and her prints exhibit the same combination of the sweet, nostalgic and slightly gothic. Some pairings are more conventional such as B is for Bear, while G is for Giant Squid, V is for Vampire Bat, and L is for Lake Monster give the series a unique and humorous twist. The limited edition prints are available for $25 each, visit Jennifer's Etsy Shop to view the whole series along with her one-of-a-kind paintings.
