A Pile of Leaves - Published in Collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art

Author(s): Tamara Shopsin Jason Fulford; Meagan Bennett (Designed by)

Art + Design

Dig through the leaf pile in this collage-inspired book with see-through pages

Readers explore the concept of layering and collage with this interactive exercise in composition. Each clear acetate page features a single element in the leaf pile, though some are not leaves at all As readers turn the pages, the leaf pile is deconstructed piece by piece on the right side, and reconstructed on the left. Younger readers will enjoy the seek-and-find aspect of the hidden objects, while older readers might experiment by adding their own images between the pages. A key at the back provides the names of each kind of leaf shown. Inspired by the Whitney Museum's approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world.

Colors are brighter than they appear - printed in pure Pantones.

Ages 2-4
