Faces are all around us, everywhere we look. On every page of this inspiring and imaginative book the reader will encounter unusual and creative ways of making faces, using printing, collage, geometric shapes and sculpture.
Surprising details are revealed by lifting flaps, looking through holes or turning the book upside-down.
As well as being entertaining and engaging, "Faces" offers an insight into major modern art movements, including pop art, op art, abstraction, junk art and kinetic sculpture.
The book's designers reference key artists, including Alexander Calder, Joan Miro, Eduardo Paolozzi and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as graphic designers of the 1950s and '60s.
Design duo David Goodman and Zoe Miller are the originators of three best-selling Tate Publishing children's books: "A is for Artist", and "Colour and Shape".
Like its predecessors, "Faces" bears the hallmark of their distinctive and original graphic style, captivating all who encounter it.
