No One Saw
Ordinary Things through the Eyes of an Artist
From the Series Bob Raczka's Art Adventures
With a simple, rhyming text and beautifully reproduced paintings, No One Saw explores modern art. Each painting highlights the way in which the artist looked at the world in his or her own way. One look at the oversized details of her calla lilies convinces us hat no one saw flowers like Georgia O’Keeffe. A city becomes art when looked at by Kandinsky. And Miró shows us the flight of a bird like we’ve never seen it before. The message is a clear one: no two people see the world in exactly the same way. There is beauty waiting to be seen and shared by you, so be creative and, more important, be yourself!

Author: Bob Raczka
Bob Raczka and his wife Amy are the co-creators of three masterpieces: Robert, Carl and Emma. They live in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, with their dog Rufus, who is also a piece of work. Bob went to college at the University of Illinois, where he majored in art. When he graduated, he became an advertising writer. But when his first child, Robert, was born, he rediscovered children's books and thought, "I want to do this." Five years later, he sold his first manuscript, a book about art called No One Saw. This would become the first book in his ongoing series, Bob Raczka's Art Adventures.
