Numero, by Marion Bataille, Chronicle Books, October 2013

Synopsis

From the imaginative designer behind the bestselling alphabet book ABC 3D, this visually dazzling exploration of numbers is equal parts playful pop-up book and work of art. This creative twist on the classic counting book reveals how the most basic shapes—just a single line and a circle—become the building blocks for every number. We begin with the two simplest digits: 0 and 1. With each turn of a page, the same shapes slide into place to form 2, then 3, all the way up to 10. A tour de force of creative engineering, Numero is a treat for the whole family: children will delight in the magical transformations, while art lovers will cherish the simple brilliance of the book’s design.


 

Marion Bataille is a bestselling author and graphic designer currently based in Paris. Her previous books include the award-winning ABC 3D.
