As an adult, I loved this book. Each page has a beautiful, artistic illustration on it with a single word description. The nostalgic style of the illustrations is a refreshing change from most contemporary children's books.

When read through the book, you'll notice an association between the figures on the pages. For example, on the left page will be an illustration of a man looking through a microscope with the word BIOLOGIST, while on the right page there will be an illustration of a man looking though a giant telescope with the word ASTRONOMER. Initially the associations are easy and obvious, but as you progress they begin to become more complex.

As a parent, I still love the book, but I can see how others might be hesitant. There are illustrations that other parents might be uncomfortable explaining to their young children. For example: CORPSE, AMPUTEE, EXECUTIONER.

Every parenting style is different, but I will have no problem trying my best to explain these figures to my daughter when the time comes.

This is a gorgeous book by bad a$$ artist Blex Bolex. If you're not a weenie type of parent, this is a fun book. We giggled over it for hours and were really sad to have to return it to the library. Ordering it as a present for a friend. Think I'll get a copy for myself, too. Some of the more "questionable" pictures started some great conversations. Kids aren't afraid of stuff that's explained honestly and without fear. Love it.

I just wanted to add my two cents since the only current review is a negative one. I don't see this as necessarily a children's book, but a fascinating artist book with beautiful and enigmatic images. Having said that, my four-year-old daughter and I do love to look at it together, and it sparks lots of conversation as we discuss the meanings of the images and create our own stories to accompany them. I have not seen the Seasons book yet, so I can't compare the two, but I really like People. However, my daughter is not daunted by strange or dark imagery, and she and I discuss those topics as they come up. Other kids and parents may not enjoy sharing this book, but I think there are many artists and art lovers who should have this one in their collection!

I love BlexBolex! I have many of his other zines and books. He has such a distinct style and yet he can design people in so many different ways. I love referencing him for color and seeing how he overlapped shapes to create a second or third color as well as seeing how he used negatives as a shape too. It's great for people interested in making illustrative prints for silkscreen. I bet it would look even nicer if it was screenprinted, but this laser printed copy is still awesome. The paper quality really helps the color.

The delivery of this book took ridiculously long, but it was well worth the wait.
