From the back cover:
You'll Never Picture This World the Same Again.
Why does a triangle make us feel stable, while diagonal lines give a sense of tension?
How can shapes, color, and composition make us feel the way things look?
Find the answers to these and many more questions as Caldecott Honor Award-winning book illustrator Molly Bang leads you on a fascinating tour of the power of perception. Using the classic fairy tale of "Little Red Riding Hood" as an ingenious visual example, Bang dramatically reveals how pictures work in a deceptively simple -- yet entirely original and accessible -- back-to-basics presentation.
"Using the simplest lines and shapes, artist Molly Bang builds up an expressive artistic world. Then, shifting roles, she helps us to understand how this world works." -- Howard Gardner, psychologist and author of the Arts and Human Development: A Psychological Study of the Artistic Process
