Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[AMMO also has] a series of illustration-led products from artist Patrick Hruby, whose colorful, retro-infused architectural imagery makes him a natural successor to Harper. If you're looking for an unselfconscious infusion of bold polychromy, AMMO should have just the thing." —Wallpaper Magazine

"California-based artists Patrick Hruby is fast becoming a highly sought-after contemporary creative." —Creative Boom

"Illustrator Patrick Hruby's geometric images are kind of mesmerizing and you can have a lot of fun letting your daughter find all the triangles on the elephant page or teach her the names of all the different colors on the fireworks page. Assuming she can say chartreuse." —Cool Mom Picks

Meet the Author

Los Angeles-based illustrator Patrick Hruby grew up in a log cabin within an Idaho forest. As a young boy he dreamt of running away to join the circus and become a trapeze artist. Eventually, however, he grew up to study math and physics before attending the renowned Art Center College of Design and pursuing a career as an illustrator. His interest in the geometry of nature is central to his work. Influenced by artists and designers such as Charley Harper, Paul Rand, and Mary Blair, Hruby has gone on to develop his own stunning and modern aesthetic. Hruby's clients include The New York Times Magazine, Playboy Jazz Festival, Varsity Pictures, and Brand New School. CMYK Magazine recently named him one of their Top 100 New Creatives.

Every child needs to learn their ABC's and what better way than a day at the circus. Patrick Hruby has captured the essence of a day at the circus in his book ABC is for Circus. There is a lion, a tiger and a big top (sorry, no bear). Jugglers juggle, snake charmers charm and a ringmaster direct it all. The book is made of thick cardboard that should withstand teethers and biters alike. It will open nearly flat and the pages are easy to turn. This is a substantial version of an ABC book that any child would love. The pages are thicker for little fingers to grab and the book is easy to hold while reading or showing a child. The illustrations, also done by Mr. Hruby, are colorful and filled with shapes your child will enjoy and could learn to identify along with the alphabet. Bright yellow, red and blue and green highlight most of the illustrations. Some have a black silhouetted scenes, which helps the colors jumps off the page.This well-done, well-constructed, hardy book will last well past learning the ABC's.
