Séverin Millet creates picture books for children with such a decorative and explosive panache that they would stop the most serious of adults in their tracks. The first few examples here are from a book called ‘Où’, which seems to be (our French speaking skills lacking) an eventful object-finding game.
Whether you’re looking for the hidden keys of just delving into the multitude of brightly coloured objects, you may just find yourself browsing endlessly through the beautiful barrage of colourful debris.
As much fun and excitement these packed illustrations are, Séverin isn’t unfamiliar with a more stripped-back, clean approach too. In editorial work and print design you can also see a simpler side with a few carefully placed elements. Either way works for us, making it incredibly difficult to look away!
