Todd Oldham’s Kid Made Modern is for every parent devoid of the ‘creative craft gene’. Inside its bright, bold pages the American uber-designer introduces young readers to iconic artists of the mid-century, translating their works into more than 50 creative and colourful kid-friendly projects. Using inexpensive, often recycled, and easy-to-find materials, Oldham encourages mini-modernists with clear photography and simple step-by-step instructions. Featuring design heroes such as Alexander Girard, and Charles and Ray Eames, Kid Made Modern is for anyone who can grasp a glue stick.
