a few weeks ago, when I received my package containing the book Carla and Leo's World of Dance,
I had no idea what to expect. I imagined a cutsie book with a few fun dance facts...I was completely unprepared for having my mind blown. the text itself (written by author, fashion model, dancer, and mother of two, Agatha Relota) is really really cool. it takes Carla and Leo through different dances and gives a fairly in depth history of each dance and its origin. (my favorite was the Foxtrot bit, as I remember my parents coming home from dance lessons and Father showing us how to do the Foxtrot) I was impressed by how much information was given on each dance, but what truly blew me away, were the illustrations created by renowned fashion illustrator Thierry Perez.
it was like looking through a fashion designer's sketchbook with each page.
