Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sure, this game isn't exactly reading, per se. But acquiring the skills to observe and recall are key in the developmental process, and what better way to cultivate your kid's mental dexterity than with a rousing game of Memory? Patrick Hruby's bold graphics chronicle circus life, the great outdoors, and more." —DWELL Magazine

"Whether to frame these vividly drawn cards, or play the game, that is the question! The set of 36 features castles, fireworks, daredevils, and more. A mesmerizing version of Concentration." —Parent & Child Magazine

Meet the Author

Los Angeles-based illustrator Patrick Hruby grew up in a log cabin within an Idaho forest. As a young boy he dreamt of running away to join the circus and become a trapeze artist. Eventually, however, he grew up to study math and physics before attending the renowned Art Center College of Design and pursuing a career as an illustrator. His interest in the geometry of nature is central to his work. Influenced by artists and designers such as Charley Harper, Paul Rand, and Mary Blair, Hruby has gone on to develop his own stunning and modern aesthetic. 

Hruby's clients include The New York Times Magazine, Playboy Jazz Festival, Varsity Pictures, and Brand New School. CMYK Magazine recently named him one of their Top 100 New Creatives.

    Highly Recommended!

    My daughter is in an adult special needs class and they use this memory game often. Her staff director says it is a great tool for adult learners as it is more visually sophisticated that the normal memory games. The clients love all the wonderful detail.
