Hide and Seek

Overview


“A fish and a teardrop. Five black spots, four blossoms blue, and a T that is white. A heart and an arabesque. A smile, a black Q, and a reflection of you.” These are just some of the hundreds of objects readers are invited to find in David Carter’s latest art pop-up book, Hide and Seek. His previous art pop-up titles, One Red Dot, 600 Black Spots, and other bestsellers, which have sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world, asked readers to find a single image hidden within ten pop-up kinetic ...

Overview


“A fish and a teardrop. Five black spots, four blossoms blue, and a T that is white. A heart and an arabesque. A smile, a black Q, and a reflection of you.” These are just some of the hundreds of objects readers are invited to find in David Carter’s latest art pop-up book, Hide and Seek. His previous art pop-up titles, One Red Dot, 600 Black Spots, and other bestsellers, which have sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world, asked readers to find a single image hidden within ten pop-up kinetic sculptures. With Hide and Seek, he has expanded the concept and now includes hundreds of images or words hidden within the pop-up landscapes, inviting readers to explore and discover something new with each visit.

Praise for Hide and Seek
STARRED REVIEWS
"Each spread has a separate, distinct look, and each offers a fresh opportunity to encounter, respond to and enjoy Carter’s brilliant artistic gifts. More playful work from a rare master of abstract design, both rich enough and sturdy enough to support repeat visits."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The maturity of the book’s design, influences, and even requests communicate Carter’s respect for his audience."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Carter mixes the sculptural abstraction of White Noise (2009) with the seek-and-find aspect of Walter Wick's books in an intricate fusion of art, color, and paper engineering. Readers (with parental help, likely) can catch references to artists like Miró, Calder, and Picasso, as well as the cubist and Dada movements, amid the brightly colored structures that spiral out from the pages. Intersecting panels rise from a warped checkerboard background in one scene, as readers turn dials and pull tabs to find "A white snowflake and a black cat in a top hat." The maturity of the book's design, influences, and even requests (the first spread asks readers to locate an arabesque) communicate Carter's ?respect for his audience. Ages 5–up. (Oct.)
Kirkus Reviews
The panjandrum of paper engineering offers six dazzling new constructs--each hiding a handful of small cutouts or printed shapes to find. Tantalizing tallies along the margins invite viewers to spot a "yellow splat, a red vine, a car and a star. / …A sleepy head, in bed, with a red thread on his forehead" and like prizes. These are attached to, dangling from or hidden within the bursts of paper swirls, interlocking mazes and geometrical structures that rise up as each spread opens. The just-barely concealed seek-and-find objects are almost incidental to the fun. It's impossible to resist closely exploring (with eyes or even gentle fingers) the long, looping curves, glimpsed inner spaces and bright concatenations of form and color just for themselves. Each spread has a separate, distinct look, and each offers a fresh opportunity to encounter, respond to and enjoy Carter's brilliant artistic gifts. More playful work from a rare master of abstract design, both rich enough and sturdy enough to support repeat visits. (Pop-up/picture book. 5-10, adult)
