Pantone Color Puzzles was a collaboration between publisher Abrams, Pantone and illustrator Tad Carpenter. In Pantone Color Puzzle,children learn to match shades of each of the six basic colors in a self-correcting format. Each page includes a full color illustration and has four removable puzzle pieces that fit into the four associated quadrants, arranged by shade. This puzzle book enables young children to further their color familiarity in a uniquely engaging way.

who was inspired by the the mouth’s ability to express such a wide range of emotions by itself. This is clearly demonstrated in the many emoticons that use the mouth to describe the key emotion: :) :D :p. :/ etc. Brilliantly executed, they have been made from stone powder clay, acrylic paint, varnish, wood and iron.

Though, you might think twice before using them on that wedding invite…
