People flying with their umbrellas as the wind blows.
Paintings that escape from their frames.
Buses are fish and fish fly in the sky!
Imagine a City by Elise Hurst is an invitation to imagine all sort of fantastic things. She encourages us to not only imainge fantastical cities but also takes the game a bit further to a world where buses are flying fish and the lines between past and present, reality and fantasy are blurred.
The illustrations are black and white and this gives the wild ideas a more sensible skimmer. This is a book filled with detials and you can spent hours looking and admiring each pages. So many things to discover.
The book is also a poem. A poem that invites us to ponder, to dream and to think dive on interesting ideas.
