Do Re Mi
If You Can Read Music, Thank Guido d'Arezzo

(2007) Houghton Mifflin
(in collaboration with Angelo Mafucci)


“Roth's ingenious and intricate illustrations, made of papers "from all over the world," constitute a unique vocabulary themselves. A sublime blend of education and entertainment. - Kirkus Reviews

“The words are basic, lyrical, and inspiring… an appealing, accessible, and thought-provoking introduction to a rarely covered subject. A bibliography and an author's note conclude the volume.” - Booklist

“Roth's collages, populated by doll-like figures, quickly shoo away any misgivings that music history could be a bore, and make a marvelous counterpoint for her carefully researched prose.” - Publishers Weekly
