Whimsical. Bright. Colorful. Creative. A must-have for a baby or design library.
I realize I haven't reviewed any board books as a stand-alone post, a gross oversight I'm going to correct beginning with my latest find. For those who stopped by the Odyssey Book Shop while I was Children's Department Manager there, you might have noticed my taste in design work similar to this. Board books featuring the work of Charley Harper and Dwell Studio received front-and-center placement on the board book shelves, while Bruno Munari's ABC picture book was featured on both the picture book shelf and in my own personal library. Now I can add the up-and-coming Patrick Hruby to my list of favorite designers in this vein.
Run to your nearest independent bookstore to grab your copy in late October/early November.
