Synopsis

Meet the Artist: Alexander Calder by Patricia Geis

No artist can put a smile on your face quicker than Alexander Calder. A sense of playfulness animates all of his work-from his signature hanging mobiles to his endlessly creative toys, drawings, and jewellery. Alexander Calder: Meet the Artist is an exciting hands-on introduction to this American sculptor. Calder's whimsical world is brought to life by imaginative pop-ups, pull tabs, lift-the-flaps, and cut-outs. A universe of artistic possibilities opens up as young readers explore Calder's creative evolution, play with his toy designs, and even create their own sculptural circus.
