Come into the imaginary world of a most unusual painter, Guiseppe Arcimboldo, who created highly original portraits by placing objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, leaves, fish, and shells next to one another to form faces. Each spread explores a different painting of the Renaissance artist, which is described simply in the accompanying text. Using a press-out flashlight made of card, included at the back of the book, you are invited to explore the darkened transparent pages of the book. As you move the torch around, you’ll discover all the details hidden on each page, one detail at a time.
