Marion Bataille’s “Numero”

A three-dimensional approach to counting in an alluring pop-up book of integers


Part entertaining pop-up book for young numerophiles, part creative dissection of numbers’ visually symbolic values, Marion Bataille’s forthcoming book “Numero” breaks down the world’s most basic integers with each turn of the page. A New York Times best-selling author and illustrator for Paris’ Pompidou Museum, Bataille’s three-dimensional approach to counting reveals numbers in an architectural form, and is printed on thick cardstock to ensure curious toddlers can explore their shapes in full tactile glory.

A follow-up to Bataille’s “ABC 3D,” “Numero” hits bookshelves November 2013 and is now available for pre-order from Amazon and Chronicle Books for $15.
