The Letter Nest is a series of watercolor alphabet and letter paintings for children by New York City-based artist Sally King McBride. The collection comprises eight themed alphabets, which customers can shop as full prints, or personalize using their names and monograms. Each letter stands for the object it represents—A for Acrobat, B for Balloons, C for Cherry Blossom—rendering these alphabets both delightful and educational.
With Jupiter in Capricorn it's about time to unveil my newest alphabet theme: The Astrology Alphabet! The Zodiac has returned to the cultural fore in a major way—and the stars have aligned for the creation of these new letters. For the first time ever, the original watercolor alphabet is available for purchase, as well as the prints based on this downright heavenly painting.
"We are lucky to have bespoke name paintings for both our boys displayed in their rooms. They engage with them daily, pointing out the letters in their names and the colorful animals that form them in Sally's gorgeous artwork."
— Ali L., Boston, MA
"I was an early customer of Sally’s, with two original bespoke letter paintings for my children. Her attention to detail is incredible while maintaining a playful eye on the subject. The Letter Nest names hang proudly over my children’s beds, adding tastefully personalized art to their room.”
— Abby W., Brooklyn, NY
"My kids love the Construction Alphabet, and I love how each letter stands for what it is (Gear for "G" and Firetruck for "F"). It's such a subtle way to reinforce the learning aspect of the piece!"
— Maureen S., Washington D.C.
