The Granny Alphabet by Tim Walker


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn my recent Non-Beauty Favourites video I featured The Granny Alphabet by fashion photographer Tim Walker and so many of you have left comments saying how much you love the looks of it! I wanted to put a bit more of a spotlight on it today because I think it’s such a gorgeous book inside and out. You know that I consider myself to be a grandma at heart (I am actually wearing a nightgown as I type), so this book really hits home for me.
I also love my Grandma…but sadly she’s not in this book.
grannyPerfect attention to detail-look at the little flowers on the inside! I really love the light blue colour scheme and all of the illustrations have a very dreamy hue to them. Gorgeous…this thing should be on display at all times.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn this book set you will find two different books: the first one has illustrations by Lawrence Mynott (stunning) and the second has photographs of real-life granny stuff.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of my favourite illustrated Grannies is ‘A is for Adventurous’. I hope I’m an adventurous granny! Never too old to have an adventure.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere’s one of my favourite pages in the other book. I’ve been fascinated by false teeth ever since I saw my own grandma without her teeth in…it was really hilarious and I couldn’t stop laughing when I noticed. It was all in good fun of course!

I bought my book set via Amazon here.

Are you a Granny at heart?
What kind of Granny will you be when you’re older?

    This looks awesome! I expected it to cost a lot more than £16 too considering you get two books- excellent coffee table book!

    This is such a good find. I’ll never be any kind of granny though technically, since I won’t be having children!

    This is hilarious and adorable at the same time. I can’t believe a book like this actually exists! I feel like I need to own this…
