Description
Created in deceptively simple paper cuts, this is a counting book with a difference: each image is not only an introduction to numerals but also to the shapes and colors of modern art. Small children, and those with an interest in modern art, will find much to enjoy in this gorgeous picture book.
Tom Slaughter's vibrant prints are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum. This, his first children's book, was inspired by the paper cuts of Matisse, Dick Bruna, the art of his late brother-in-law the renowned fabric artist, Tim Jocelyn as well as the work of his wife, Marthe Jocelyn, creator of "Hannah and the Seven Dresses" and "Hannah's Collections."

"From the Hardcover edition.
