Squares and Other Shapes with Josef Albers

Publisher: Phaidon

Squares, circles, triangles and rectangles - all in different colours, all in different places, and all having fun. Turn the pages and see if you can identify the shapes.

This is the second book in the First Concepts with Fine Artists series, and this time children are introduced to basic shapes through the artwork of Josef Albers. Each page contains one of his paintings with descriptions to help children identify the shapes. Albers' art is the perfect medium for teaching as the bright colours and simple shapes are eye-catching and lovely to look at. A great introductory learning tool.
