Mister Horizontal & Miss Vertical

Mister Horizontal & Miss Vertical

This delightful book was inspired by an iconic photograph by René Maltête, an image of a couple wearing horizontal and vertical stripes holding the hand of their little one wearing … well, guess what? (the photo at the end). It’s a very cute idea that brings a smile to your face, but it is also thought provoking and poetic.

Mister Horizontal Miss Vertical

Mister Horizontal loves sailing, everything that glides and walking in the desert with sand as far as the eye can see.

Miss Vertical is crazy about rockets and likes going up and down in elevators and bungee jumps.

With wonderful combinations of bold designs in primary colors by Italian illustrator Olimpia Zagnoli and text by French writer Noémie Révah, it’s a fun conceptual book for children – one of those books of opposites but it goes beyond the simple comparison of abstract ideas. It’s a story of different personalities, adventures, a family and a chance for a child to reflect on how she became who she is.
