The 1000 Dot to Dot Wonders of the World | Book Review
In a society where everyone is always moving and doing something, we need something to force us to stop, step away from technology and do something fun and creative. New Zealand artist, Thomas Pavitte, has been making amazing dot to dot art for years and his books have made waves around the world. His latest book includes 20 wonders of the world. The wonders include the Taj Mahal, Stonehenge, the Great Wall of China and Mount Rushmore. Pavitte creates the dots and reader fills them in to create their own works of art.
I like the relaxing effect of just focusing on where the next number is. It takes my mind off the day and I’ve found it’s really great to do before bed because of that. It’s not such a mind boggle that it wakes up your brain, but it does help you to tune everything out.
They say each drawing should take between half an hour to an hour to finish, but I’m not that fast. I’m going to get lots of hours of relaxation from this book.
These dot to dot pieces of art are simply beautiful when finished. Just take a step back and check them out. If you don’t quite get the idea of what they could look like, check out this video:
Each piece tears out of the book, so you can easily frame or hang these in your home as pieces of art. I’ll be keen to hang these in my office as a wall feature.
Thanks to Hachette NZ for sending me my copy of The 1000 Dot to Dot Wonders of the World for review
