“Nothing less than a once-in-a-lifetime book…” (Rice Peckinpah - Minority Reports)
Already Not Yet is extremely proud to release Are We Here Yet? Questions and Answers and Drawings by Aevi (Age 4 1/2), on its author’s 6th birthday. Are We Here Yet? is a picture book like no other: 26 sets of profoundly simple questions and answers formulated and beautifully illustrated by a very inquisitive four-and-a-half-year-old boy. Included are age-old conundrums such as: What is the last number? Why do crayons have color? Why do doors open? Who made god? Why do I like things? What happens when you die? Why do you have books? This is a philosophical and pedagogical inquiry based on earnest observation and fantastic leap of imagination only possible for a relatively newcomer to our world, sure to delight and fascinate thinkers of all ages.
You can read a sample and purchase the book from our website: http://alreadynotyet.org/03.html
This is also the first book in the series “Works on Progress,” which are dedicated to conceptual books created by children in which the author’s own pedagogical process of articulating the world/word(s) informs the narrative and structure of the work. Produced to a high standard, each volume is heavily illustrated and makes an original and significant contribution to research in its field.
Aevi is a runner, counter, and jumper born on December 15, 2010. He likes vehicles and going up in the air. He can ride a bike with two wheels. He can see better than everyone else (except for babies) because he is so little. He wants to be an animal doctor when he grows up, but he is not going to grow up next week. Aevi has lived in Tokyo, Osaka, Kashiba, Bali, Lisbon, and New York in the past. Now he lives in San Diego. He created most of this book in the summer of 2015, on Gili Trawangan, a small island off the coast of Bali in Indonesia.
