Hi. I’m Brooke Reynolds from the blog “inchmark” and I’m so happy to be posting here all this week. I’m a graphic designer and art director by trade, so I spend my time designing books, and doing work for great clients when I’m not at the park
with my kids.
My 5 year old son C started kindergarten this Fall and we’ve been spending lots of time sharpening pencils and practicing his handwriting. I love seeing him hunched over his paper, trying to get the letters just right. So I thought this week we could spend some time with our ABC’s. Each day I’ll focus on a different subject, today is all about ABC flashcards. I’m a bit of a sucker for a well designed set of ABC cards, which is why we have about 12 sets. Here are my favorites:
These animal cards hang in my daughter Bee’s room. From eeBoo, illustrated by Melissa
This set was originally designed for Martha By Mail, and I regretted not buying them when the catalog closed its doors. Luckily they were brought back as part of the Martha Stewart Crafts line.

This vintage illustrated set by Cavallini & Co. were given to me when my son was born, now they hang above his bed.
These sign language cards are from Pottery Barn Kids. Sadly no longer available.
I was thrilled to find these cards featuring the work of Charley Harper.
Stay tuned tomorrow for our favorite ABC books.
