"A Pile of Leaves'. Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin
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.
'Find Colors'. Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin
A colors book with no colors – instead, die-cuts to peek through and find them yourself
This introduction to colors integrates the reader's surroundings into carefully considered die-cut silhouettes, providing children space to visually experiment. Readers will gaze around the room through a rooster-shaped hole in search of something red, through a sun-shaped hole for something yellow, through squiggly worms for something pink. Designed for the youngest readers, this sturdy board book features 12 die-cuts made to flip and carry on a color-seeking mission.
"Arbitrary Stupid Goal" Tamara Shopsin
What is 'Arbitrary Stupid Goal?? A no-muss memoir written by Tamara Shopsin. It is a love letter about the charms of old New York/New Yorkers, a man named Willy, the singular restaurant Tamara’s family runs, and the philosophic wisdom of her father Kenny Shopsin.
'Clayton's Ascent" Jason Fulford
Employing a playful and thought-provoking use of sequencing and layout that is unmistakably Jason Fulford's, 'Clayton’s Ascent' was shot between 1997 and 2003 while traveling the US by motorcycle, Fulford’s saturated colors are infused with a veiled foreboding, drawing a blurred line between the real and artificial. Deriving its title from the historic, 1835 nine-hour hot air balloon excursion, Fulford fills the shoes of observer and protagonist, as our sights shift from scenes of a simultaneously fantastic and tumultuous American landscape to the top tiers of indoor arenas, and finally arcing towards the heavens as we gaze down from above the clouds bidding a receding Earth farewell.
Books will be available in-store on the day of the event and signed copies are available to pre-order with free shipping in the U.S.
