The interactive element of the book means that every time you turn a page there is a surprise or something new to see – and as a result, The Interactive Art Book can be returned to again and again over the years as a reference for young children right through to adulthood. It's a wonderful introduction to the magical world of art.
The book includes 60 art masterpieces and 12 three-dimensional models illustrating perspective, colour-mixing the illusion of movement and abstract composition. There is a Calder mobile to construct, 3D glasses, a colourscope, plus a separate 18-page activity book with instructions for composing pictures and making prints, collages, scratch pictures, potato prints, sculptures, and more.

The Interactive Art Book by Frank Whitford
Tango Books are excited to present this new, re-titled edition by world-famous paper engineer Ron van der Meer. Inventive paper engineering combined with an accessible text brings the subjects of each spread to life. Gatefolds, flaps, pop-ups and other mechanics reveal the process of making and appreciating art: light and colour, pattern and composition, narrative, style and movement and much more.
There's a 3-dimensional pop-up reconstruction of the room and figures in Velazquez’s painting Las Meninas in the centre of the spread entitled Stories and Puzzles. The reader can look through the holes to see the scene as the painter saw it, and then read about the background to the painting.
