Press Release Fun: Hervé Tullet – The Exhibit
My 3-year-old daughter is currently an Hervé Tullet fan, but not in the sense you might think. It’s not Press Here that strikes her fancy (though she enjoys it well enough) but his board books with Phaidon. Who knew? Now there’s an exhibit up over in Brooklyn I need to take her to.
