Quirky summer world,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rules of Summer (Hardcover)
This purchase was by special request - for an 18yr old - totally thrilled to have possession of it, after much admiration for this, and other work by Shaun Tan. I the giver, found the one -liner page comments somewhat surreal, very quirky, and a bit of a mystery or puzzle -perhaps not for little people or other generations ! However, as we are both involved in art and its application, we share a fascination with the artwork which is remarkably reproduced, almost touchable - filling each page to the very edge with swathes of thick paint,and colour balances.Those add to the atmosphere created on each page., not easily forgotten once visited. The minimum information provided, is misleading,.. the eye and mind are invited to stay, play, and share, in imagination !
