A wordless picture book presents a series of scenes, each one from farther away, showing, for example, a girl playing with toys which is actually a picture on a magazine cover, which is part of a sign on a bus, and so on.

Also known as a popular children's book illustrator, Istvan Banyai is unsurpassed at portraying the dream lives of the urban hip, as shown in this fantastic collection of his best work. He describes his art as "an organic combination of turn-of-the-century European retro interjected with American pop, served on cartoon-style color, garnished with miniature details".
If you were an astronaut traveling far out in space and you looked at the earth, what would you see? A small ball in the huge black universe. That’s where these pictures begin. Then they move closer and closer to the earth, each view revealing new details. Until finally . . . See for yourself. In this wordless picture book with stunning cut-paper illustrations, Steve Jenkins masterfully depicts the many levels of the universe, from the farthest reaches of space to the most familiar corner of your backyard.
