John Burningham

ABC by John Burningham 1964, published by Jonathan Cape
endpaper for ABC by John Burningham

This was one of my first books that I remember (and still own). An alphabet by John Burningham. They are fantastic illustrations - typography and pictures - how I learnt to recognise letters and understand language - still an influence today. He also wrote several other childhood favourites, Borka 1963, Trubloff 1964, Humbert 1965 and Cannonball Simp 1966.
