“Colorful and curious. Experimental and improvisational. Each of Hervé Tullet’s creations, whether the bestselling children’s book Press Here or the internationally traveling Ideal Exhibition, breaks the boundaries of art.
This is the definitive book for adults from an iconoclast of the children’s book world. Tullet is a renowned author and artist who urges people of any age to create playfully and joyfully.

Hervé Tullet’s Art of Play features commentary from curator Aaron Ott and children’s literature expert Leonard S. Marcus. It’s sure to become a favorite among parents, teachers, and librarians as well as art lovers and creatives. With this book, as with all his work, Hervé Tullet invites you to join him on an exuberant journey of creativity.”
