What do you see? brings to life the surreal art of Wangechi Mutu in this contemporary art book for kids. Each page of this seek-and-find book reveals a small part of one collage piece by Mutu, allowing readers to explore each part of the work closely. On the final page, the whole artwork is revealed. Considered one of the most important African artists of recent years, it's never to early for little ones to start learning about Mutu.
We wanted to make the experience of reading this book reflect the spirit of Mutu's work, so we came up with an unexpected structure. Instead of progressing right to left, this book reads top to bottom, reinforcing the imaginative nature of Mutu's work, through which we ask little readers to step into Mutu's fantastical world and use their imagination to answer the question - what do you see?
