Color Me


Jacques Julien
Color Me
Paris, Semiose, 2016
14,7 x 21 cm
24 p.
Impressão em offset
ISBN: 978-2-915199-92-5

Knock knock, spirit are you there? A wave of magic wand and the objects drawn by the sculptor Jacques Julien come to life, building a pyramid, forming puppets and turning themselves in every possible direction. Fortified by their perfectly assured artistic sensibility, they come together and split apart, balancing precariously or as stable as a well oiled machine, a mechanical ballet or mayhem on the move. Difference and repetition, repetition and difference, over and over, until the final tumble, crash, bang, wallop!

Jacques’ album starts as a construction kit, continues as a gallery of caricatures and ends up in the form of a coloring book. No time to lose! Let’s get down to work!


What is this?


Tamara Shopsin
What is this?
Los Angeles, The Ice Plant, 2015
8,9 x 10,6 cm
40 p.
ISBN:  978-0-9897859-4-5

It’s never too early to learn about abstraction — especially if celebrated illustrator Tamara Shopsin is doing the teaching. What Is This? is a wordless children’s book that will encourage imaginative thinking in readers young and old. The miniature book, made for small hands, is filled with simple line drawings, executed with characteristic charm by Shopsin. Each drawing playfully adds to and alters the same basic squiggle, which is transformed across different contexts on each successive page: first the squiggle appears as the petals of a flower; next as a bird’s nest, then a cowboy’s lasso, then a plume of smoke from a factory chimney. Each time, only a few extra lines are required to suggest the conversion. By the end of the book, faced with an innocent squiggle, the question is not “what is this?,” but rather, “what isn’t this?”

We Go to the Gallery

We Go to the Gallery
Hampshire/UK, Dung Beetle Ltd., 2015
18 x 11.5 cm.
46 p.
ISBN: 9780992834913

Have you taken children to a gallery recently? Did you struggle to explain the work to them in plain, simple English? With this new Dung Beetle book, both parents and young children can learn about contemporary art, and understand many of its key themes. Join John and Susan on their exciting journey through the art exhibition, where, with Mummy’s help, they will discover that real meaning does not exist, and that death is final.
The jolly, colourful illustrations will enable the child to smoothly internalize all of the debilitating middle class self hatred contained in each artwork. New words on every page also help the child to identify the concepts, so that they may repeat them at dinner parties and impress educated guests.
We Go to the Gallery is the first in a series of Dung Beetle Learning books designed to make scary subjects approachable for the under 5s. Printed in bold colors and written in a clear and cheerful tone, each book will drag families into the darker recesses of the collective unconscious, for their broader cultural benefit. – Dung Beetle Ltd.

17 x 17 cm
isbn : 978-2-915199-46-8

Como uma extensão de seus desenhos animados, Guillaume Pinard propõe um novo livro de artista construído com sequências inéditas. Através da situação formal e discursiva de seus personagens, uma árvore, uma parede, uma piscina, Guillaume Pinard nos permite penetrar nos mistérios de seu universo fantástico e perturbador, feito de complexidades falsamente ingênuas e fascinantes onde o cômico está ao lado do cáustico.

Dans le prolongement de ses dessins d’animation, Guillaume Pinard propose un nouveau Catalogue d’artiste construit au fil de séquences inédites. Par la mise en situation formelle et discursive de ses personnages, un arbre, un mur, un bassin, Guillaume Pinard nous laisse pénétrer dans les arcanes de son univers fantastique et inquiétant fait de complexités faussement naïves et fascinantes où le comique cotoie le caustique.
