Mirror (2010) by Jeannie Baker.
If you’re up on children’s books, you’ve probably seen this already. And if not, get your hands on it pronto. Jeannie Baker has created a stunning wordless masterpiece with her collages depicting a day in the life of two young boys, one in Australia and one in Morocco.
Mirror has a unique lay out. You open the book and flip through two sets of stories simultaneously — the similarities, differences and intersections between the lives of these two boys (and by extension any two people) become the real narrative.
Have I mentioned how beautiful these collages are? Wow.
Wow. That is a crazy talent.
