Featuring 200 pages of simple, block colour illustrations on thick, creamy paper, this is illustration nirvana. Striking, pop-art colours come together to form a series of people in all sorts of ways--from puppeteers to bodyguards, jugglers to thieves.
The careful observer will note that each page-opposing image in some way juxtaposes the other--or, at times, plays the synonym (sometimes both).
The bright shapes that comprise the Blexbolex style are a masterpiece in construction. This will please both the discerning adult eye, and yet totally engage and enthrall even the smallest among us.
But that's enough from me. Take a look at this book trailer to truly appreciate what words cannot express!
