Cityblock By Christopher Franceschelli & Peskimo
Brand Abrams & Chronicle Books
Cityblock explores city life in an exciting and unique way, from up in a high-rise building to down in the subway. Divided into three sections—things that go, things to see and things to eat—it features 24 different aspects of city living. As with the other acclaimed books in the series, die-cut icons hint at the larger context on the next spread. Each section opens with a full city scene but gradually focuses in on the small, unique neighbourhoods that make the city large and grand. This clever book will attract young readers living in a metropolis as well as in the countryside with urban life that pops off each page.
Christopher Franceschelli is a seasoned publisher, editor and creator of children’s books. He currently runs Chronicle’s Handprints imprint and the SmartInk packaging company. Peskimo’s world is teeming with monsters and bunnies, pattern and texture, combining quirky details and streamlined design with a generous pinch of nostalgia to create art that has won admirers far and wide. Since meeting at university in Leeds, Jodie and David saw eye to eye on robots, kittens and evil monkeys. They began to work under the name of Peskimo in 2004, and together they have crafted a vast array of characters and creations that have appeared as toys for Kid Robot and Crazy Label, as well as on t-shirts, magazines, newspapers, billboards and nightclub walls.
