This is a very cool book for the parents of children under the age of six months. Child development experts agree that newborns may have difficulty changing focus from foreground to background. This mesmerising book could help. What you have here are very bold black and white images created by contemporary artists. Damien Hirst! Keith Haring! It would be a fun baby gift for new parents and a very sweet coffee table book once baby is developmentally ready to move onto other material. An added bonus!! A very nice frameable group of prints in the back..... Sweeeet!— WALT'S STAFF PICKS
