Synopsis

Get Dressed! by Seymour Chwast

Legendary illustrator and designer Seymour Chwast celebrates the daily routine of getting dressed in this fittingly whimsical and satisfyingly unique novelty book. Unlike more traditional books on the subject that deal with the how of getting dressed, Chwast deals with the why :Get dressed to read about dragons, reads the text as we see a boy getting dressed in a makeshift knight costume. A girl in full floral garb stands in a garden alongside the text, Get dressed to hide. The book features half and full gatefolds allowing an initial foreshadowing of the items of clothing and a surprise reveal on each spread. Even the cover invites readers to peak inside, with a die-cut magnetic closure! For children who love to dress or those who hate it, this book encourages all to play with boundaries and reveal the individuality of the clothing we choose to wear.
