Do you have the doodle bug?

16th January 2004 at 00:00
Incompleteness is the essence of The Doodle Book, by Taro Gomi (Thames amp; Hudson, pound;9.95), which is already a bestseller in Japan. It contains hundreds of rudimentary drawings for readers to decorate. Blank windows lack faces peering through them; playful pigs need something to protect them from a lurking wolf; waves roll across the page, but with no surfers.

Sometimes the required doodles are specified, but elsewhere there are shapes that might be developed into human or animal forms, trees or buildings, machines or surreal fantasies.
