Simple verses challenge readers to identify the everyday objects used to construct nine three-dimensional Christmas scenes, including a cathedral, Nutcracker ballet, and Santa's workshop.
Eagle-eyed readers rejoice! There's more to Christmas than meets the eye in Steiner's latest Look-Alikes collection of astounding 3-D assemblages. Cauliflower florets, coin wrappers, pretzels, buttons, mouse traps and dog biscuits are among the objects that comprise the intricately constructed scenes photographed here. A minimum of 100 objects makes up each of the nine settings (e.g., transporting the audience to a performance of the Nutcracker ballet, Santa's workshop and an ornate cathedral where readers seem to stand before its stained-glass windows), and avid fans will want to seek them all. Instructions for making gift-worthy look-alikes at home, an extensive "answer key" to identify the various items throughout, and a behind-the-scenes q&a with Steiner conclude this eye-popping volume.
