Item description for Secrets in a Box (Adventures in Art) by Christopher Wynne Joseph Cornell...

Published to coincide with the centenary of Joseph Cornell's birth, this child's-eye view of one of America's best-loved artists includes guidelines for making your own Cornell box.

Children relate to the art of Joseph Cornell. Look in their pockets and under their pillows and you'll see the same kinds of treasures Cornell transformed into brilliant assemblages. This delightful, interactive exploration encourages young readers to experience the power and magic of Cornell's visual poetry.

Illustrated throughout with photographs and color illustrations as well as fascinating biographical information, the book takes readers through Cornell's life (1903--73) to discover how he transformed everyday objects into enchanted masterpieces. Where did he get his inspiration from? What makes these boxes so intriguing? What kinds of feelings do they inspire? A detailed exploration of specific pieces; guidelines for recognizing and appreciating Cornell's art, and step-by-step instructions for creating a Cornell box of your own make this unique book an irresistible experience for the Joseph Cornell in all of us.
