    Book details


No artist can put a smile on your face quicker than Alexander Calder. A sense of playfulness animates all of his work-from his signature hanging mobiles to his endlessly creative toys, drawings, and jewellery. Alexander Calder: Meet the Artist is an exciting hands-on introduction to this American sculptor. Calder's whimsical world is brought to life by imaginative pop-ups, pull tabs, lift-the-flaps, and cut-outs. A universe of artistic possibilities opens up as young readers explore Calder's creative evolution, play with his toy designs, and even create their own sculptural circus.

"Vibrantly colored and interactive, with cutouts, pop-ups, sliding tabs and opportunities to explore and mimic some of the methods the artist employed. Calder's fascination with toys, mobiles and what he called "stabiles" - essentially rigid sheet-metal sculptures - makes his work well suited to a young audience, and to the paper engineering of pop-ups." - NYTimes.com"Art isn't always two-dimensional, so why should books about it be? Patricia Geis's new Meet the Artist series kicks off with biographies of Pablo Picasso and Alexander Calder. The books not only feature biographical information on two beloved artists, they feature three-dimensional versions of their work, so kids can see Calder's most important sculptures pop up on the page, lift flaps to see some of his drawings, and actually design some of their own work with the included instructions." - PopSugar.com"When a book gets your kids excited to read more, that's about the most beautiful thing in the world. But when a book gets your kids excited to create too, it's absolutely thrilling. And that's just what happened when my girls discovered the gorgeously produced new Alexander Calder pop-up book, Alexander Calder: Meet the Artist! by Patricia Geis.... There is nothing not to like in this book, no matter how old you are.... This is the perfect book to set kids off on a lifelong love of art." - Cool Mom Picks"We can't think of a better gift for that budding seven-year-old visual talent." - Lonny
