On the flip side
Sometimes, altering one little detail is all it takes to make everything go topsy turvy. That’s the premise on which ‘Opposites’, created by design company PatrickGeorge (£5.99), works to ingenious effect. Each spread has a sheet of acetate with a design printed on it. Flip it one way and you get one idea, flip it another and you get the opposites. For example, for ‘sun’ there’s a pair relaxing in loungers under a shady parasol. Move the acetate sheet and that parasol transforms into an umbrella to keep off the rain. It’s a fun way to introduce your child to the popular concept of opposites – and the powers of visual trickery.
