Crack Open MoMA's First Storybook: Young Frank, Architect

NYC's Museum of Modern Art has unveiled its first-ever children's picture book, a skip through the life of Young Frank, a kid architect with a penchant for building chairs and towers out of toilet paper rolls, spoons, and more. (He's even used his spotted dog, Eddie, "but only sometimes.") Yes, the whole thing's squishingly adorable in about a dozen ways, but chief among them? Young Frank and his architect grandpa (Old Frank, duh) wear matching bow ties, straw boater hats, and Le Corbusier glasses on their trip to the museum. Anyway, find below a spread from Young Frank, Architect by Frank Viva, plus the promo video (spoilers?) from MoMA.
