Art This Way

We love every book artist couple Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin put out. Their combined skills in graphic design, photography, and illustration—and their quirky sense of humor—make for some of the most innovative (and stylish) board books out there. Art This Way might be the most obviously educational. With fold-out pages that mimic the flow of walking in and around a museum, kids will be able to get up close and personal with artworks like Roy Lichtenstein’s exploding lithographs, Cindy Sherman’s self-portraits, and Andy Warhol’s flowers. Lift the flaps, gaze into the mirror, and unfold pages to cultivate the experience of interacting with fine art.
