One eye was bigger than the other. That was a mistake. The weird frog-cat-cow thing? It made an excellent bush. And the inky smudges... they look as if they were always meant to be leaves floating gently across the sky. And so goes The Book of Mistakes—a journey told in minimal, playful text that takes readers through an artist’s idea and the many mistakes she makes while she creates.
As one artist incorporates accidental splotches, spots, and misshapen things into her art, she transforms her piece in quirky and unexpected ways, taking readers on a journey through her process. Told in minimal, playful text, this story shows readers that even the biggest -mistakes- can be the source of the brightest ideas--and that, at the end of the day, we are all works in progress, too.
