“Mastering the art of Paper Engineering has turned [David] Carter into the Steven Spielberg of ascending insects.” — People Magazine in praise of the Bugs in a Box® series
Fans and critics worldwide agree that David A. Carter is paper engineering extraordinaire. In his latest creation, One Red Dot, Carter has adopted a design scheme reminiscent of Alexander Calder's mobiles —innovative in its approach and infused with motion, abstract patterns, and fluidity. With contemporary pop-up spreads and a feisty red dot to find on each page, this modern work of art is both a count-to-ten activity book and an artistic adventure rolled into one!
David is the mastermind behind the powerful "bug phenomenon" that began in 1988 with the publication of How Many Bugs in a Box? Since then he has created a series of Bugs books with a combined sales of more than six million copies. His Easter Bugs and Halloween Bugs both were #1 New York Times bestsellers. Other critically acclaimed titles in his color series include Blue 2, 600 Black Spots, Yellow Square, and White Noise. He also has collaborated on Let’s Make It Pop-Up!, Curious Critters, The Elements of Pop Up, and The Nutcracker. Carter lives in Auburn, California, with his wife and two daughters.
