What the critics said about Paul’s first book (Alphabet):
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
As is the custom with most such books, we travel in orderly fashion from A to B to C and onward, but here most letters take the shape of an object or idea-or the object or idea takes the shape of the letter, depending-with results that are both surprising and refreshing.
—Wall Street Journal
Each of Thurlby’s letters is meticulously conceived – he often uses old books and pieces of paper for backgrounds, and his art has a very stylized, retro feel.
