Alan Fletcher (1931 - 2006) is one of the most influential and respected figures in British design. Famous for the high profile work he created within Pentagram of which he was a co-founder, Fletcher became renowned as one of the most creative graphic designers on the British scene.

Anteaters to Zebras, created the year before his untimely death in 2006, is the first children's book by Alan Fletcher to be published in the UK. Originally designed with Fletcher's grandson in mind, the book is a creative, playful and witty introduction to the alphabet, expressing the pleasure he took in turning work and play into the same activity.

Children and adults alike will delight win Fletcher's series of brightly coloured animals illustrating the letters of the alphabet and in his infectious sense of fun.

Born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1931 Alan Fletcher designed some of Brtiain's most memorable graphic identities including logos for the Victoria & Albert Museum, Reuters, Lloyd's of London and the Institute of Directors. After leaving Pentagram in 1992 he continued to expand his portfolio working for clients including Domus magazine, London Transport, Shell and Toyota, and acting as Consultant Art Director for Phaidon Press. His seminal book on visual intelligence, The Art of Looking Sideways, is now in its tenth anniversary year.
