"NOTHING LESS THAN A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME BOOK" - Rice Peckinpah
The first publication in the new series WORKS ON PROGRESS, Are We Here Yet? is a picture book like no other: 26 sets of profoundly simple questions and answers formulated and beautifully illustrated by a very inquisitive four-and-a-half-year-old boy.
Included are age-old conundrums such as:
What is the last number?
Why do crayons have color?
Why do doors open?
Who made God?
Why do I like things?
What happens when you die?
Why do you have books?
This is a philosophical and pedagogical exploration of the world based on earnest observation and fantastic leap of imagination only possible for a relatively newcomer amongst us. Here are answers to everything you always wanted to know, but never dared asking (a four-and-a-half-year-old).
WORKS ON PROGRESS
is a new series of conceptual books created by children
in which the author’s own pedagogical process of articulating the world/word(s)
informs the narrative and structure of the work.
Produced to a high standard, each volume is heavily illustrated
and makes an original and significant contribution to research in its field.
Aevi is a runner, counter, and jumper born on December 15, 2010. He likes vehicles and going up in the air. He can ride a bike with two wheels. He can see better than everyone else (except for babies) because he is so little. He wants to be an animal doctor when he grows up, but he is not going to grow up next week. Aevi has lived in Tokyo, Osaka, Kashiba, Bali, Lisbon, and New York in the past. Now he lives in San Diego. He created most of this book in the summer of 2015, on Gili Trawangan, a small island off the coast of Bali in Indonesia.
