2008 Award
Look-Alikes Around the World
( by Joan Steiner, Little Brown $15.99 Score: ) She’s done it again! This time Joan Steiner has made witty constructions of familiar sights around the world. Photographed as “postcards” they tease the eye to look for the unexpected…combs that are the blades of a windmill that turns out to be a metronome, leaves of tulips that are sting beans, cupcakes that are the huts in an African village and brussel sprout trees in front of the Taj Mahal with towers of clarinets and pears for minarets. It’s not just fun and games. Yes, there is a glossary of sorts. But at it’s heart, this is about creativity and seeing things in new ways. 5-9.
