Synopses & Reviews
The Munich based creative team of Mössbauer Keller and Molnár demonstrate how readers can create an array of characters and objects using their fingerprints and an inkpad. The projects vary in complexity—drawn on faces limbs and other features transform single fingerprints into monsters pirates knights and more while multiprint creations include aliens pirates robots superheroes and detectives. (A “Wild West” section featuring a thumbprint based cast of cowboys and Native Americans is ill advised and jarring especially given text like “Native Americans like to sit around a bonfire... and live in tepees.”) Mostly blank spreads featuring library meadow and other settings let readers populate the book itself with their one of a kind artwork.
