A Skulk of Foxes

I adore this series of alphabetical prints by Brit design studio - Woop. The series features collective nouns from the common to the questionable.  In the designer's words: 
"Some of the collective terms listed have real pedigree and lineage and can be found in The Oxford English Dictionary, James Lipton’s 1968 An Exaltation of Larks or even The Book of St. Albans published in 1486. Some are of a more dubious and newer vintage than the original terms of venery. We make no apologies for being eclectic and hope that you will have fun with the words and enjoy our graphic interpretation of some of them." 
 I think these would be perfect in a child's room. No space on the walls? They also have a book and greeting cards! Here are a few of my favorites.
