Like most contemporary folk, I'm a novelty seeker always on the look out for something new and different. This sweet book does exactly that exploring our world in glorious black and white. It relies heavily on great composition and pattern in a novel format that has a surprise at the end. The author uses spare, crisp, lyrical text as it moves us along on our journey. Something else to note is the many ways that the over-sized book could be used. When I first bought it, I was quite besotted with it and kept returning over and over to look at the beautiful illustrations and great design.
