Marion Bataille is one of the world's greatest pop-up designers and the creator of the best-selling "ABC3D", which sold more than 200,000 copies around the world.
In "10", she plays with the shape of numbers, exploring the pleasure of seeing one number mutate into another as we count from one to ten and back again. "10" relates to the way we count numbers on our fingers and to the apparent symmetry of our bodies.
If you count from one to ten on your fingers in one direction and then the other, each finger will have two numbers associated with it.
For instance if you count to finger number three from left to right, that finger will be finger number eight when counting from right to left.
In Marion Bataille's book, the number three effortlessly shifts to the number eight as you turn the page.
The formal perfection and playful intelligence of "10" will enchant readers of all ages.
