Praise For Bauhaus Ballet

"This may strike you as a peculiar subject for a pop-up book, and it is, but writer Gabby Dawnay and illustrator Lesley Barnes have produced a scintillating thing using geometric patterns, restrained colours and cunning paper engineering. Chunks of sparse text loop around the images, mimicking the shifting steps of a dance."-Financial Times
