Wall Street Journal Review for Cultured Donuts: Take a Bite Out of Art HistoryPosted: 2023/01/27
An excerpt from the article:Chloe Tyler, an American artist and graphic designer, uses a sweet treat as a medium for teaching children ages 7-14 about the styles of 16 visual artists. In the ebullient and colorful pages of “Cultured Donuts: Take a Bite Out of Art History,” Ms. Tyler uses the style and signature palette of each artist to create a big glazed donut with pink frosting and sprinkles to show how the same object may be imagined in different ways. Thus we see a Rembrandt Donut rendered in cross-hatchings of dark ink, a Dalí Donut that arches and melts in a surreal landscape, and a Pollock Donut evoked with wild spatterings of pink on a background of splashed black. Alongside these speculative baked goods, Ms. Tyler explains a bit about each artist’s life, technique and aesthetic. (She includes herself as artist No. 17; we see her amid album covers and donut pictures.) It’s a fun idea and a fun book with lots of tips, information and encouragement for young aspirants.Click here to read the full article.
Flowerpot Press Talks STEM with School Library JournalPosted: 2020/10/16
It’s no secret that STEM plays a significant role in the world of education, and it’s easy to recognize why. Our understanding and advancements in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics have helped to shape the world we live in, and we use this knowledge frequently in our day-to-day lives.
We sat down with School Library Journal to discuss what Flowerpot Press is doing to help inspire the next generation of scientists by publishing fun and engaging STEM titles for children of all ages. In the article, SLJ highlights some of our key STEM series from the Whose Is It series for preschool-aged children to the How Do titles for readers ages 7-12.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“Flowerpot Press started in 2005 as a collaboration between brother and sister Patrick and Anne Hayes. Despite the company’s rapid growth, it remains very much a family business today. Flowerpot’s focus has always been on publishing brightly illustrated books for very young readers. The company’s catalog emphasizes early learning concepts and STEM/STEAM titles that encourage children to ask questions, wonder, and build hypotheses about the world around them.”
