Synopsis

“A fish and a teardrop. Five black spots, four blossoms blue, and a T that is white. A heart and an arabesque. A smile, a black Q, and a reflection of you.” These are just some of the hundreds of objects readers are invited to find in David Carter’s latest art pop-up book, Hide and Seek. His previous art pop-up titles, One Red Dot, 600 Black Spots, and other bestsellers, which have sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world, asked readers to find a single image hidden within ten pop-up kinetic sculptures. With Hide and Seek, he has expanded the concept and now includes hundreds of images or words hidden within the pop-up landscapes, inviting readers to explore and discover something new with each visit.

Praise for Hide and Seek
STARRED REVIEWS
"Each spread has a separate, distinct look, and each offers a fresh opportunity to encounter, respond to and enjoy Carter’s brilliant artistic gifts. More playful work from a rare master of abstract design, both rich enough and sturdy enough to support repeat visits."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The maturity of the book’s design, influences, and even requests communicate Carter’s respect for his audience."
Publishers Weekly, starred review
