Art for baby

Yana Peel (ed.), various illustrators

Templar Books
ISBN: 9780763644246
RRP: $29.95

The subtitle - Twelve works by famous contemporary artists to explore with your baby – describes the purpose of this book. A gallery of high-contrast images, selected from modern artworks and simple in design, provide high contrast stimulation for baby’s focus. All are in black and white but for one of sepia-hued dots. This is a book to use with babies who are beginning to gaze on objects in their world; not actually reading but preparing for it. A nursery frieze is included in a back pocket. This unusually mesmerising book is in an
over-sized board format.
