2 - Count Book
26 colour illustrations, 64 pages, hardcover; age from 4 years
Ted van Lieshout has brought together 25 exceptional Rijksmuseum artworks in his latest picture and counting book. A book with works of art in which you can count things. But you don’t know what it is you’re supposed to count, all you know is how many there are. Should you count the number of owls in an engraving, the flags in a watercolour, the dots of the dices in a painting, or the tiles showing children at play? Or nothing at all because you can see the actual number in the work of art itself? The left pages of the book are only marked with a large figure and on the right pages the work of art is pictured. The book includes an index with the title, artist and material of the work of art in Dutch and English.
