The charm of paper
No contemporary device could replace the feeling in leafing through the pages of a book. And no videogame’s character could replace the closeness with a personal toy.
With a hint of nostalgia, the graphic designer Gérard Lo Monaco comes up with this unique pop-up book.
Simple shapes and glowing colors become classic toys such as the fire truck, the baby’s bassinet or the farmer’s tractor and everyone is given a storyline to read. Recommended for children of 3 years and up, this small world of paper is a big treasure of creativeness and knowledge.
