The Art of Science

Spring 2000 Non-Fiction
Ages: 10 & Up
Author: Jay Young
Publisher: Candlewick Press
ISBN: 0-7636-0754-1
Hardcover Price: $27.99
The works of more than 40 artists – Leonardo da Vinci, Alexander Calder, David Hockney, and many more – cleverly combine with innovative, interactive three-dimensional experiments to tackle complex concepts like patterns of nature and light and sound waves. Taking traditional pop-up books to the next level (one pop-up requires a battery and some detachable pieces need a careful touch to ensure repeated use) the experiments explore how science has inspired creativity. A 32-page companion booklet adds to the full-color fun with artists’ biographies and a deeper exploration of the science investigated in this entertaining and educational collection.
