Seasons by Blexbolex is a very retro look at the seasons.  It is all illustrations with one word descriptions in large, thick, pink block letters at the top.  The book begins with four illustrations - all the same - but altered for each season: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.  The book continues on to have images that are reminiscent of each season - they are randomly ordered, not going through each season in turn.  

Blexbolex is from France and studied screen printing in school.  The book contains grainy, colorful print images that vary from simple to wonderfully detailed.  The artwork is really fantastic.  I think this book would be very fun to look at with a young child pointing out simple items and naming them.  I think it would also be interesting for an older child who loves art to see a different medium done very well.

Hi, stopping by from Book Talk Tuesday. The cover does look retro-- I have picture books from earlier decades with similar artwork. This would be a good book for my 3 and 4 yr old lang delayed students. Thanks for sharing!
