I also came across Anil Mistry's excellent alternative A-Z print via Design Week (where you can see lots of close-ups).
His Icons Alphabet goes something like: D is for David (Hockney), X is for XTC, Q is for Quincy (Jones), K is for Kenneth (Williams)...
When my friend Holly had her son last year, I wanted to buy a baby gift that both child and parents could enjoy together way into the future.
Nippaz With Attitude hip hop baby CD was a start (and no mentions of smoking!). But the same shop also sells these very excellent alphabet posters, for £36.99. They used to do it in yellow and, I think, orange but now it's just pink and blue. Still damn fine prints and good life inspiration for young minds.
And if you're nurturing a budding graphic designer or illustrator, what about this?
It is the work of Curtis Jinkins, a graphic designer based in Texas. I think it's beautiful.
