Look, look, look

I like the idea of having little kids test drive artist's books. From a Hyperallergic article Why Grownups Should Play with Artist's Books Designed for Kids about a show at the Center for Book Arts in New York: "By and large, these books do not tell elaborate stories; the vast majority don’t tell stories at all, at least not as a typical picture book would. Instead, many of these works focus on delight — through the surprise of shapes unfolding, revelations of shifting scale, new images found by rotating things around, new spectacles revealed as each page turns."
