Blue Apple / Chronicle Books 2007
This is one of those books that reviews best visually. Here's the front and back cover spread.
This genius of a mess of a color concept book revels in the playfulness of its rhythm and the perfect child-like roughness of its collage work.
I'll grant, this book won't be for everyone, especially those who might feel it's difficult for small readers to "track" the flow of words and images on the page.
Rosenwald, a graphic designer by profession, knows how to have fun, a rare commodity it seems these days in picture books.
