Black Meets White by Justine Fontes and Geoff Waring

Despite its title, this fresh and inventive book is not so much about the colours themselves, but how they interact with each other to create something new — and in the process, gets us to look at some familiar patterns in a new light.


The spare text complements the bold, graphical illustrations, while the overall spirit of the book is a playful cross between Patricia Intriago’s Dot and Laura Vaccaro Seeger’s die-cut books.


The quirky originality is a breath of fresh air and I love the last pull-tab, which draws the book to a satisfying close.
