Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cool book that is fun for adults and kids that secretly "teaches" many of the principles of graphic design. Cute story that is well executed. I got it for our nine year old son, and though it's a lot simpler than what he normally reads, he really enjoyed it and read it right away when it came.

My only issue with it is that I really would have rather seen it in hard-cover, like most kids picture books are. Having it softcover makes it very thin on a bookshelf and it makes it feel much less permanent or important. Or even a thicker board cover, if not real hard-cover. It's the author's first book though (and first run of the book itself) so hopefully later versions will get an upgrade to make it last longer (and feel better when reading it).

What a wonderful little story, innovative in its use of text, lines and textures much in the same vein Edwin A. Abbott's 18650 Flatland was innovative.

Although I think it is originally written for children some of the content is far more heady than that and suitable for adults.

Thomas's debut book is amazing and I look forward to more from him. Keep up the GREAT work!

This book is a must buy for kids ! I purchased it as a gift and it will certainly not be the only copy I give !! It was a HUGE hit ! Engaging, fun and unique is what I found Text to be. I am hoping he has other adventures in the future.

Text Line Texture is the brain child of Thomas Hallgren a very unique tech savvy book of delight for the next generation. Most children's books do not address what is one of the most ingrained parts of culture today. I think his creativity brings a new bent to children's books
