"A magnificent interactive 'face book' portrait of the artist."—Kirkus Reviews

Chuck Close Face Book, for ages 8 and up, presents the life and art of one of America's most acclaimed visual artists. Glue + Paper Workshop, in collaboration with art educator and writer Ascha Drake, conceived, wrote, and designed this award-winning children's title.

"Art lovers of all ages will revel in this vivid, wonderfully affecting book, which is almost as ingenious and memorable as Close himself."—Publishers Weekly

Glue + Paper Workshop engaged a group of fifth-grade students who visited Close's studio and asked marvelously honest and insightful questions. Those questions, and Close's engaging responses, form the book's narrative. In the center is an interactive device—sliced pages showing many of the different processes used in making his self-portraits.
