You Call That Art?! first provides an overview of sculpture from prehistory until the late 19th century, then gives readers a look at ten 20th-century artists who helped define modern sculpture. Included in the book are Auguste Rodin, Constantin Brancusi, Pablo Picasso, Naum Gabo, Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, Jean Arp, Marcel Duchamp, Louise Nevelson, and Lygia Clark. Carter and Diaz then invite readers to create their very own modern masterpieces. The book includes die-cut pieces that can be assembled (and reassembled) in any way the reader chooses. Ideas are provided for how to arrange the pieces, but the reader can also create his or her own original works of art. Also available by David A Carter: Spring: A Pop-Up Book.
