ARTIST BORIS KULIKOV ILLUSTRATED “SIX DOTS” FOR A. KNOPF
Kulikov’s engrossing mixed-media illustrations interpose soft pastels with spreads of chalky blue line on ink-black pages, dramatically conveying Louis’ isolation and single-minded intensity. An inspiring look at a child inventor whose drive and intelligence changed to world—for the blind and sighted alike
– Kirkus Reviews
Illustrations in Kulikov’s signature style, light-hearted with a touch of tartness, deftly toggle between sun-washed scenes in which the world views Louis and blackened scenes in which Louis recreates the world he sees in his mind.

Kulikov’s mixed-media artwork mirrors and magnifies the text, keeping the spotlight solidly on young Braille and his world as he moves through it.
