Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mix It Up! by Hervé Tullet Hervé Tullet, creator of the incredible ‘Press Here’, has returned with another equally fun, uniquely interactive, straight-up UNMISSABLE book. Prepare for some colour-smushing adventures that require neither the rolling up of sleeves, nor the panic over the safety of soft furnishings. The reader will discover with wide-eyed wonder the alchemy of colour mixing as they touch, tap, squish, tilt, rub, shake, and smudge their way through the pages. Each vibrant colour experiment is presented with high quality photography so that the paint textures – the spatters and the fingerprints – add authenticity to the minimal yet enthusiastically-toned instructional type at the bottom of each page.
