'Mesmerised' is the perfect gift for newborn babies, and great for parents who are looking for new ways to entertain their baby.
Why black and white for babies?
At birth a baby’s eyesight is quite blurred. Black and white images with sharp outlines are much easier for baby to see in these first few months of life when it is hard for them to focus, and hard for them to differentiate colour.
Illustrator Katey Love is a graphic designer based in Hobart, Tasmania. She has a 17 month old daughter who was enthralled by black and white images from day 1, thus inspiring her to produce an Australian-designed book of graphics for babies.
"There is nothing lovelier than to see your baby focus and engage in something for the first time. I hope your little one will be captivated by the gorgeous animals and shapes in 'Mesmerised'. Prop the book next to them on their playmat and watch with joy as they study the pictures". - Katey xx
