In Just One Second by Silvio Freytes

This ingenious and fascinating picture book depicts commonplace street scenes: some scenes are funny, some exciting and some just intriguing. The final page shows that these events have one thing in common: theyaere all happening simultaneously. On one street. In just one second.


Its design is striking, its palette retro chic, its fonts funky.
