This book is a reinterpretation of the classic children's picture book by John Burningham from 1979, illustrating the preference game “Would you rather”… With enchanting drawings made out of sand by Carolina Cerbaro.
The children's book Would you rather… by English Author and Illustrator John Burningham was first published in 1979. Christoph Elias Meier and Mara Züst took Burningham's incantation one step further and adapted the book's meaning so that it asks about the essence of the things. Now these things, often forgotten about, but nevertheless populating our world, can be grasped by pondering wonderful and ample questions. This creates a game of foolish ventures, mental leaps and revocable choices, accompanied by fascinating illustrations made out of sand by Carolina Cerbaro.
