Another “Search and Find” ? Not quite! This one has the ambition to compete with an actual art book, produced with extreme care particularly thanks to an American style sleeve that unfolds into a poster. There are 12 double pages, like the 12 months in a year, in which the reader is invited to find numerous hidden details in the images.
Each month has a different style: February is the time of the animal carnival, in August we dive into an overpopulated sea, in October we go for a walk through pumpkins and bats, etc.
Michaël Cailloux created images swarming with details and an aesthetic resembling wallpapers for his first children’s book. Compositions, patterns, repetitions and weirdness mix and mingle. Beyond just playing along the fun search and finds, these illustrations are especially an invitation to daydream.
