What Can I Be?
Unearthed after nearly forty years, What Can I Be?, a stunning concept book written by Ann Rand and illustrated by Ingrid King, is sure to delight children with its superb graphics and vivid palette. Triangles, squares, circles, lines, and colors spring to life in various and creative formations as they ask, "What can I be?" A green triangle asks to become a tent, a kite, a Christmas tree, or the sail of a boat, or why not all of these things?
Ann Rand (1918 2007) trained as an architect at IIT, where she studied with Mies van der Rohe. She was the author of several children's books: Little 1, Sparkle and Spin, and I Know a Lot of Things. Ingrid Fiksdahl King is an architect and painter. She is a coauthor, with Christopher Alexander, of A Pattern Language, first published in 1977 and still one of the most influential books on architecture and planning ever published. She is from Norway and now lives in Berkeley, CA."
