This Equals That

By Jason Fulford, Tamara Shopsin.

Creative brainstorming and visual thinking for kids in the acclaimed artist's book for kids by Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin published by Aperture

Aimed at children ages five and up, this clever and surprising picture book by artists and collaborators, Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin, takes young viewers on a whimsical journey while teaching them associative thinking and visual language, as well as colors, shapes and numbers. Through a simple narrative and a rhythmic sequence of photographs, the book generates multiple meanings, making the experience of reading the book interactive--parent and child must ask questions and come up with their own answers, drawing on the child’s imagination. Each spread presents a new relationship that changes and shifts as the book unfolds, with the last picture relating again to the first, forming a circle. Through playful and inspired sequencing, everyday scenes are transformed into a game of pairs, enjoyable for adults and children alike.
Jason Fulford (born 1973) is a photographer and cofounder of the nonprofit J&L Books. He is a contributing editor at Blind Spot and a frequent lecturer at universities. His monographs include Sunbird (2000), Crushed (2003), Raising Frogs for $$$ (2006), The Mushroom Collector (2010) and Hotel Oracle (2013).
Tamara Shopsin (born 1979) is a graphic designer and illustrator whose work has been featured in The New York Times, Good, Time, Wired and Newsweek. She is the author of Mumbai New York Scranton and designer of 5 Year Diary. She is also a cook at her family’s restaurant, Shopsin’s, in New York.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times

Maria Russo

By the time you get to the end of this book, you’ve undergone a kind of visual tuneup that will make you see the world around you more clearly, and make it much more interesting too. The publisher is plugging the book as being meant for ages 5 to 105, and I heartily agree — anyone can both enjoy and learn from it.

New York Magazine

The Editors

Artists Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin draw visual associations between stained glass and bouquets, octopi and jacks. No words included.

Want the kid in your life to grow up with the mind of an artist? Give them Fulford and Shopsin’s delightful book. Through juxtapositions of two opposing images, like a shark and a triangle, in a series of whimsical portraits, This Equals That helps readers develop the kind of associative, creative, brainstorming brain that grows great ideas.

...a picture book designed for kids, but it's also appealing to anyone interested in the language of photography.
