An A-Z of Childhood – an alphabetical series of paintings by Luke Martineau celebrating childhood.
This range of designs is based on acrylic painting studies of my own children. It started as a series of alphabetical paintings inspired by the woodcuts of William Nicholson. In the pictures, I want to explore and celebrate enduring aspects of childhood- the simple pleasures of the great outdoors, role play and imagination.
Every Girl’s Alphabet and Every Boy’s Alphabet
Working with Kate Bingham, who wrote the text, and bookbinder Kate Holland, who designed the layout, I have produced and released two books, Every Girl’s Alphabet and Every Boy’s Alphabet. These are available as commercial editions from Welsh independent publishers Graffeg, priced at 12.99 each.
