This Way, That Way.
An endearing flip-and-fold introduction to shapes and colours
This Way, That Way is fun and endlessly surprising. The pages of the book, which are die-cut and impressed with fold lines, feature a sequence of brightly coloured shapes, animated with smiling expressions. As the reader opens and closes, folds and unfolds the pages, colourful characters in the shapes of squares, circles, lines and outlines start to relate to one another in new ways.
Rendered in bold colours and with clean lines, Antonio Ladrillo’s playful artwork is an ideal way to introduce young children to the building blocks of art. Ladrillo’s expertise is in bringing abstract visual elements to life by transforming them into simple characters.
This wordless book is infectiously cheerful and aims to introduce very young children to the language of visual art in an endearing and memorable way.
