The creative genius of Swiss artist Celestino Piatti takes many forms. Graphic designer and illustrator, his work spanned poster design to typography, most notably creating over 6300 titles as chief designer for Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag (DTV) of Munich.
Piatti's most whimsical, and endearing, works grace a number of children's books, including our two latest additions at rattle me that: "Celestine Piatti's Animal ABC" and "The Happy Owls". Filled with bold lines and saturated colors, the books guide children through the learning process and teaching the value of a positive attitude.
Creativity, ingenuity, and craftsmanship are attributes we hold dear at rattle me that. Our gift selection includes only the best toys, games, creature comforts, and of course, books.
