If you appreciate strong graphical design matched with superior paper engineering, then this book is for you, no matter what your age.
Sarah Goodreau‘s ‘The World-Famous Book Of Magical Numbers‘ is a boldly designed, retro-inspired book on numbers and counting.
But this is no ordinary introduction to numbers, it’s a thrilling and magical look at numbers 0 to 10.
Thanks to some clever paper engineering, we are presented with grand illusions and spectacular sorcery, all revealed right before our eyes, at the turn of every page.
Using pop-ups, pull-outs and lift-the-flap wizardry, Goodreau‘s vibrant artwork and magical trickery is brought to life on every spread.
In the follow-up to ‘The Greatest Opposites Book On Earth‘ by Tom Frost, the eye-catching vintage styling is ever present and the clean, simplicity of the spreads remains.
It must also be said that the interactive elements to this elegant book of numbers are both sturdy and resilient. It will withstand plenty of exploration that little hands may throw at it.
A younger audience will delight in the magical range of interactive elements to this book, whilst an older audience will appreciate the nostalgic design.
This is a great way to explore numbers, with an added touch of magic. Undoubtedly a book will be re-visited again and again.
