Amazon Greatest Books of the Month, October 2010: With eye-popping illustrations, three-time Caldecott medalist David Wiesner takes readers on a stunning journey through the art world. --Seira Wilson What follows is a magical journey of explosive color--brilliantly highlighted by the desert background--where acrylic paints, watercolor, and line drawings, are deconstructed and re-invented, and Art undergoes a Jackson Pollack-like transformation. Art and Max is the story of two artists: Art, a collared lizard who is studiously painting a portrait when we initial meet him, and Max, who has just picked up paints and brushes and is ready to go. Combining minimal text with remarkable images, this is a book to be cherished and poured over, inspiring the artist in all of us.

Amazon Exclusive From Author David Wiesner: The Development of Art and Max (Click on pictures to enlarge) Introduction for the photos below: These images show the development of the opening spread for my latest picture book, Art and Max. The story of Art and Max has begun. Now Max is off his feet, literally flying in to the picture, and the landscape has also come together. This drawing is from an early dummy, before I had fully developed the characters or fully worked out the story. Arthur is beginning to look far better. I am exploring body stances to locate an expressive interaction between the two characters. Now, on pages 4 and 5, he enters the scene because the story begins. Offered that a picture book is so brief, the opening pages ought to set the scene and introduce the characters in a concise and effective way. On the half title and title pages of Art and Max, I show Max racing across the landscape, from left to proper. I have reversed the position of Arthur and Max to continue the left to right motion from the title page. Their physical relationship still doesn't feel right. Max was originally a chameleon, but I decided to make him a Collared Lizard instead. The scene, painted, as it appears in the book. Here the characters are looking good, but I think Max still wants to burst onto the scene somehow. This isn't it.
