Read full description of the books Walk This World:I love the concept: "let's take a stroll to the four corners of the globe." Each two page spread is devoted to a different place (New York, Paris, Pisa, Moscow. Clues and cultural elements are discovered in flaps for windows and doors. One I couldn't tell for sure -- Africa or Middle East? Is this Istanbul with turrets and carpets? Is it really Pisa or Italy -- in addition to the learning tower there are gondolas (Venice) and a volcano (Vesuvius?) and a bit of the Colesseum.
The design is muted, flat colors, stylized figures, a bit retro graphics. There are specifics (and probably way more than I have discovered) that indicate where exactly you are. You can open up the Guggenheim to reveal a work of modern art in NYC.
I'd like to try this with kids to see how they respond. The stylization almost gives the book a sameness, which seems contrary to the specificity of place and culture the book is aiming for.
