Overview
"Madame Sonia Delaunay "is a pop-up book inspired by the work of 20th-century painter and theater, textile, and fashion designer Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979), who was known for her vivid use of color and bold, abstract patterns. Renowned art director and paper engineer GErard Lo Monaco has created this clever book, published to coincide with a major international exhibition of Delaunay's work, featuring pop-up illustrations based on her paintings, textiles, and costume designs.
Lo Monaco's highly expressive gouache illustrations convey the same energy and verve as Delaunay's original artworks, which, for reference, are reproduced at the back of the book. Fun rhyming verses accompany each pop-up, offering children a way of looking at the images. Readers will not only be informed and amused but also inspired by this contemporary interpretation of Delaunay's work.

Readers get a pop-up tour of the paintings, drawings, and costume designs of artist Sonia Delaunay (1885–1979) in an engaging, small-format book that feels like something of an art piece itself. Throughout, Lo Monaco’s playful rhymes encourage readers to analyze, contemplate, and react to Delaunay’s abstract forms. “Harsh moustaches and slithering snakes? That is simply frightful!/ Sticky worms and ocean waves? That’s much more delightful!” reads the text accompanying an untitled 1948 work, whose blue, black, and red squiggles slide left and right thanks to horizontal cuts in the page. In a standout spread, flaps unfold to reveal angular costume designs dating to the 1920s. This intriguing introduction to Delaunay’s work should leave art aficionados eager to learn more about her. Ages 3–7. (Apr.)
