The Giant Game of Sculpture

Hervé Tullet. Phaidon, $29.95 (16p) ISBN 978-0-7148-6800-4

Tullet channels the joie de vivre of Press Here! in this wordless (and enormous) “book,” which takes interactivity to another level entirely. Cardboard, accordion-style pages—splattered and slathered with paint—feature die-cut holes, slots, and punch-out shapes. The latter can be placed into the various gaps, letting readers create an almost infinitely changeable piece of sculpture art large enough to do double duty as a modernist fort. “Experiment and make your sculpture unique by adding pieces of card, paper or other things you can find that will fit,” suggests the book’s cardboard case. One never knows what to expect from this genre-bending series, and this addition is no exception. Ages 5–8. (Sept.)
