Noah’s Ark, recently published for the first time in Australia show’s off Dick Bruna’s simple, colourful and beautiful designs alongside a well told story of a promise, a flood & a new start.
Caleb the Caterpillar is on his journey to become a butterfly, but before he can transform he has to join Noah and a lot of animals onboard a remarkably big boat with no windows. Join Caleb and Noah as they each go on a journey full of promise & hope.
I love the way that this book tells the story with a clear understanding of simplicity, it’s this awareness of simplicity and the use of shapes & colour in design that makes this such a beautiful book.
Obviously the word of today is “simplicity,” but don’t be fooled, it takes a lot of talent and work to be this simple…
Beautiful, well designed, creative…
