Re-Zoom by Istvan Banyai

Page by page we are pulled farther out of the first image, and each time it changes to something the reader doesn’t expect, and each with its own new perspective. The illustrations are highly detailed and colorful, which completely transports the reader from each scene to the next. The Re-Zoom narrative moves from an Egyptian hieroglyphic to a film set to an elephant ride to a billboard to a train.

Re-zoom was one of the most interesting books I’ve ever read, or looked at since it is all pictures. Overall I thought it was clever but unsure whether it is something I would recommend. Recommending this one to my friends I read both Zoom and Re-Zoom the follow up book back to back. There’s no way to describe it, other than to say it’s the same format as the author’s original volume which was entitled Zoom.

Like Chinese boxes in reverse, each colorful illustration is revealed as part of a larger artwork. Each image is a full bleed, only allowing the reader to focus on certain parts of the image at a time. The perspective shifts are slightly more complex here than in Zoom, and the pace is a bit awkward; younger readers might orient themselves with the first book before getting acquainted with this one.

He is a commercial illustrator and animator whose works has appeared in numerous newspapers and magazines and on album covers. Sometimes leadership efforts will emerge to try to understand the overall story. Personally preferred the ending in Zoom, which leaves you with a sense of grandeur and is reminiscent of the Pale Blue Dot. More than a gimmick, the technique offers a fresh perspective on how art orders and gives value to what we see.


So what we thought might have been a sand art was really a design on a watch.

It’s fascinating to watch each of the pictures zoom out and each time become amazed to discover what the last picture really bnayai. The illustrations in this story are so bright and detailed; any child would be drawn to them. What communication methods might have worked better? The Story of Ferdinand Munro Leaf. The finale-which leaves readers in a subway tunnel as the train’s red taillights recede-may not be as mindbending as Zoom’s outer-space flight, but is nonetheless a clever solution.

After reading Zoom, I was interested in looking at Re-zoom. As you rezlom to read you notice that the left page is always covered in black and the right page is a different perspective of the page before. Pre-readers can read and understand this and should find it fun, yet sometimes a bit of a challenge too, in a good way. Wow, banuai book blew me away!
