Descrizione articolo


This is a book that truly has to be seen to be appreciated. Each spread features a different shape (square, circle, star, triangle, rectangle) that has been cleverly paper-engineered to form spectacular sculptures. Readers are invited to find and count as many items as they can per spread-shapes within shapes, shapes of different colors, and so on. Whether readers search and count or not, the beautiful paper sculptures will be admired by all who see them. This is a book like no other and belongs on everyone's home bookshelf.


A Special Note from Author Ron Van Der Meer
I have been working on an extremely involved online Maths project, called, for the past 6 years through Flash animated short movies making maths fun and understandable. The system teaches kids from 4 to 16 maths in schools and online at home very successfully but I missed the pop up world and playing with paper.

At long last I could let my hair down with How Many and create something that was not only beautiful to look at but also fiendishly difficult to work out.

It is heaven to be back in the publishing world.

Each spread poses a series of questions for the viewer to answer. Funny enough I always fancied creating paper sculptures in white and primary colours, but with my Dutch Calvinistic upbringing I still felt the urge that enjoyment comes with a price, hence the questions that I reckon will drive people insane, or at least start a massive debate in the family.

There are questions for young children and mind –boggling ones for adults. Both devious and gorgeous. That’s the kind of trouble that knows how to have fun.
