Thomas Pavittes incredible 1,000 Dot-to-Dot books brought a fresh spirit to a classic pastime, and have sold hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide. With Querkles: Masterpieces, Thomas has created an even more original and amazing concept that is sure to delight artistic minds of any ages. At first glance the Querkles are nothing but a seemingly random arrangement of numbered overlapping circles but cunningly hidden within each one is a famous artwork waiting to be revealed. You can keep it simple, using one pen or pencil, or you can go colourful, with felt tips or paints: the principle is no more complicated than the colour-by-numbers books that kids love. The results, however, are unexpected, graphic and sensational and theres the thrill of discovery every time! 20 iconic works of art, ranging from Da Vincis Mona Lisa to Duchamps Fountain, will come to life and each can easily be removed from the oversized book, framed and displayed.
