Follow the continuous line and seek and find 70 hidden items!
After Inside the Museum Mazes, Luisa Vera has created another eye-catching lift-the-flap book for little artists. A tribute to one the most famous drawing techniques of the 20th century!
As its title suggests, Luisa uses the continuous line to show the path of a pencil stroke from morning to bedtime. With this drawing technique, a single line remains unbroken from beginning to end while the drawing tool stays in uninterrupted contact with the surface of the paper during the entire length of the book.
Following the pencil stroke, little artists can seek and find 10 items in every spread: from toys and animals to space ships and family members.
By way of epilogue, readers will also find some short information about the artists who inspired the author to create this arty story: Paul Klee and Saul Steinberg. And for the impatient, an answer key to the 70 items is included at the end of the book.
