Las Vegas-based illustrator Abbie Paulhus pairs the brilliant mind of Wes Anderson with the twenty-six letters of the English alphabet, allowing cinephiles and design lovers alike to geek out over one cool poster. She creates illustrations that perfectly invoke the iconic filmmaker’s carefully constructed alternate universes. The images are a sweet mixture of innocence and irreverence, which echo the appeal of Anderson’s films. Paulhaus’ style also complements the director’s aesthetic by blending simple strokes with intimate details.

Scrolling through each individual letter, fans can easily recognize old friends from worlds past. Starting with the letter “A” for Agatha of The Grand Budapest Hotel fame and moving onto the motley crew of Boggis, Bunce, and Bean from Fantastic Mr. Fox, you can make your way through the director’s most memorable cast of characters. (And if you get stumped, you can call upon your movie friends for assistance.) It rounds out with “Z” reserved for Zero Moustafa (of which there was never a finer lobby boy).
Besides the world of Wes Anderson, Paulhus has also created an alphabet poster made up entirely of The Office innuendos and inside jokes. Pop culture has certainly inspired Paulhus, but this gifted illustrator’s repertoire spans beyond film- and television-inspired posters to inspirational art and handmade maps. She’s also expanded into illustrated cards and unique wrapping paper. Paulhus has a number of her illustrations available as posters, pins, phone cases, mugs, and more on Etsy.
Illustrator Abbie Paulhus has reimagined the alphabet as an homage to Wes Anderson films.
Each letter represents a quirky character, familiar setting, or iconic symbol from the director’s films.
Paulhaus also shows her letter love to another favorite: The Office.
The creative illustrator has even taken her love of letters across the U.S. with some state- and city-specific alphabets.
