    Beatrice Alemagna

    Hardcover (Tate, April 15, 2014)

It tells the story of a lion who, bored by his rural life in the savanna, seeks excitement and opportunity in the City of Light. Upon arriving in Paris, the lion is disappointed to find that despite his size, people barely pay attention to him, not even when he lets out a ferocious roar on the busy underground Métro.Revealing the sights and sounds of Paris from Montmartre to the Eiffel Tower, this beautifully illustrated book successfully conveys the experience of being a stranger in a new city and the process of understanding one’s own identity.Praise for A Lion in ParisSTARRED REVIEW"This oversized book about a bored young lion who visits Paris to find “a job, love and a future” is worth every bit of paper and ink. The lion atop the Eiffel Tower, mane blowing in the wind, captures the essence of this artful, whimsical delight."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review"By the time he decides to settle in the City of Lights, readers will be thoroughly charmed by both the lion and his creator."—Publishers Weekly"Ms. Alemagna's illustrations are made up of drawings, colored cutouts and bits of photography—an increasingly popular approach known as mixed-media collage—and she is playful with perspective. The effect is both mesmerizing and warming as we follow the great beast around the City of Light."—The Wall Street Journal

  • Madame Sonia Delaunay: A Pop-Up Book

    GĂ©rard Lo Monaco

    Hardcover (Tate, April 21, 2015)
    Madame Sonia Delaunay is a pop-up book inspired by the work of 20th-century painter and theater, textile, and fashion designer Sonia Delaunay (1885–1979), who was known for her vivid use of color and bold, abstract patterns. Renowned art director and paper engineer Gérard Lo Monaco has created this clever book, published to coincide with a major international exhibition of Delaunay’s work, featuring pop-up illustrations based on her paintings, textiles, and costume designs. Lo Monaco’s highly expressive gouache illustrations convey the same energy and verve as Delaunay’s original artworks, which, for reference, are reproduced at the back of the book. Fun rhyming verses accompany each pop-up, offering children a way of looking at the images. Readers will not only be informed and amused but also inspired by this contemporary interpretation of Delaunay’s work.
