Taro Miura | Tate Publishing 2009
Crazy Days is a theme book with a dozen fantastic ‘what’s wrong with this picture’ spreads. I’m a huge fan of illustrations with smart riddles or ‘switcharoos’ —and Taro Miura pulls it off stylishly cover-to-cover. This book says to a kid, (and their parents), anything is possible if you can see it. Wouldn’t the world be grand if trees were full of music, clouds were sheep, horns blew bubbles and ships could fly? With bright, simple and loosely airbrushed illustrations these are indeed crazy days—and I like it!
