Artist Sophie Benini Pietromarchi invites children on a unique and poetic journey into the world of bookmaking. Exploring colors, textures, shapes, and feelings, she demonstrates how to turn these intangible elements into pictorial narratives, using such unlikely fodder as pencil shavings, onions, dust, and leaves.

This visual feast of a book evolved from Pietromarchi’s bookmaking workshops with children. Playfully narrated, and packed with captivating and inventive illustrations, The Book Book is a tribute to the rich, imaginative world in all of us.

Review:

"Wide ranging, informative and full of ideas to get people's imaginations kick started ... definitely worth having a look at." -- The School Librarian (UK) Spring 2008

"Invites kids to explore everyday materials and transform them into something extraordinary - handmade books." -- Scholastic Parent & Child, April 2008

"A musing and artistic approach ... it's as much an exhortation to artistry as it is a guide to creation." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, February 2008
