As tots turn into teens, story-time starts to seem overrated, but after entering the adult world it’s easy to feel nostalgic for those care-free reading sessions. Thankfully, art book publisher Gestalten is working on a line of children’s books that will also appeal to the advanced aesthetic sensibilities of adults.

Gestalten has recently launched a new imprint for children, Little Gestalten, which combines clever storytelling with innovative imagery, T Magazine reports. The new line of offerings will include titles such as Alphabetics, a challenging book for children to expand their vocabularies and linguistic horizons with the help of colorful illustrations by artist Dawid Ryski, and Elsa and the Night, which features a tale about a girl who makes friends with the Night and an elephant named Olaf.

Another early offering from the new kids’ imprint will be Issum Bôshi, a reimagining of a Japanese fairytale from the French duo behind the design house Iconori, Mayumi Otero and Raphaël Urwiller. Even the classic Brother’s Grimm story Little Red Riding Hood will get a revamped contemporary feel with bold red and black graphics.

These new page-turners will surely captivate both adult and young minds.
