These fantastically original and educational photo books are the perfect way for toddlers to create order in the chaos of words and objects they have to process each day. Thanks to these broad photographic overviews of everyday objects, children learn to identify and name the objects in the world around them in a fun and easy way.

But what really makes these books special, is their layout. The depicted objects in That One! are divided into fun and unexpected categories, such as ‘that is dirty’, ‘that is thin’ and ‘that is yummy’. In the sequel That Is Small,  all depicted objects have one thing in common: they’re all of a small size (and the book is in a smaller format, too). But these objects too fall under more specified categories, like ‘sweet’, ‘square’ or ‘squiggly’. The hot pink coloured edges make these sturdy board books true eye-catchers.

Mirte Stut (1980) is an independent marketing strategist. She studied Social Sciences and Communication Studies, conducting research on the influence of brands on unintentional behaviour. The idea for That One! came to her when reading a newspaper article on the importance of categorization in the brain development of young children. 

 

Geurt van Donkelaar (1964) is a graphic designer working at an advertising company in Amsterdam. His main expertise lies in the field of communication and branding. In his work, Geurt focuses on the essence of the message, implementing it in approachable design: with the strength of simplicity, but with an eye for detail. Next to his work in advertising, Geurt works as a book designer, having designed books like PowerBrands, 206 grams of Amsterdam and, of course, That One! and That Is Small.
