Board books and Art Spiegleman

A board book is a sturdy, cardboard edition of classic children's picture books durable enough for toddlers who like to chew on things. Generally running between 20 to 32 pages, board books were popularized by authors like Margaret Wise Brown, Eric Carle and Sandra Boynton.

In the Shadow of No Towers, the anticipated new book by Art Spiegleman, to my surprise, is a 42-page oversized board book. I haven't read it so shouldn't be making any grand sweeping judgements here but it's definitely an odd book design choice I had to point out.
