The Icon Alphabet was inspired by childhood alphabet charts, he says, and features icons from the worlds of art, cinema, television, music and science.

Albert Einstein, Zebedee, Peter O’Toole, Vangelis, Quincy Jones and Funkadelic all make an appearance, forming what Mistry describes as ‘a grown-up alphabet of cool.’
