My Art Book Of Love arrived this week and oh did it make me smile.
Do you fancy a peek inside…
It is a volume of fine art curated for young children that explains, thorugh art and the simplest of words, what love is.
I thinit is really a wonderful way to introduce children to some of the world’s finest ever artists and their iconic works.
This is a book to keep forever.
Published by Phaidon My Art Book of Love is a hardback with glossy boards created for children to enjoy sticky fingers won’t spoil this. Featuring 35 full-page artworks from all periods, My Art Book of Love is absolutely charming. Keith Haring to Brancusi. Robert Indiana to Andy Warhol art in all it’s forms is celebrated along with love. These paintings are a real treat..so many genres and styles and a riot of colour It shows art, like love, to be a diverse and beautiful thing.
Every artwork in the book is accompanied by gentle read-aloud text, for example ‘A Goodnight Hug’ by Mary Cassatt is paired with ‘Love feels… cosy like the sun on your skin’
A stunning gift for a child you want to introduce to art . To be honest though I also think this is also a beautful love token for any age.
This stunning art book is the leading title in the My Art Book series, the first of four themed volumes of fine art designed to be the foundation of each child’s art book collection
