Critics

"Punchy spreads by Isol (Daytime Visions) combine splashes of wash and loose figure outlines that don’t quite align, contributing to the sense of household chaos."
― Publishers Weekly

"A spontaneous burst of visual meaning." 
– Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

"Square pages and lavishly thick paper contribute to this immensely pleasing reading experience as well, nudging readers to run fingers across the beguiling matte illustrations as they revel in deciphering them."
―Kirkus Reviews

"With understated poetry and humor, Isol challenges readers to bring their own interpretations to each composition."
―Publishers Weekly

"The gloriously ambiguous alphabet book from Isol combines clever phrases with intriguing imagery, allowing readers to interpret and reinterpret thousands of scenarios. Alphabet books have never been so magical."
―Politics and Prose

"The book is gorgeously, meticulously designed from start to finish, with a charmingly rough simplicity achieved through crayon-like hand-lettering, blocky collages, intriguing textures and inky, kinetic brushstrokes. [...] Thought-provoking and deliciously odd." 
– Shelf awareness
