ABC

Toby Leigh has got your adult alphabet down and its a barrell of mischievous laughs. It’s a parody of the classic 1970s children’s ABC books from yesteryear, but the childlike words - Dog, Queen, Apple etc have been twisted into sinister adult themes through the illustrations.

 

Toby made a little promo film which you can watch on the crowdfunding page.
