Author(s): Ann Rand
Part of a series of picture books Ann and Paul Rand originally wrote for their daughter, Listen! Listen! explores the interplay of sound and colour. Paul Rand's distinctive illustrations with bold shapes and bursts of colour playfully interact with the text as children will learn to listen and repeat the noises they hear every day.
Paul Rand (1914-1996) was one of the most influential American graphic designers of the twentieth century. In addition to teaching graphic design at Yale for nearly thirty years, he designed the iconic logos for ABC, IBM and UPS. Ann Rand (1918-2012) trained as an architect under Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and is the author of several children's books, including What Can I Be?, Little 1, Sparkle and Spin, and I Know a Lot of Things.
