Tree of Codes by Jonathan Safran Foer is the second book published by Visual Editions, according to S.Oliveros “Tree of Codes has done something no other literature has done before, and that is; every page has a different die-cut. It is a sculptural masterpiece as well as being an incredible story.”
I did not realize altering book is part of a contemporary trend, when I started blogging about them. There is a growing collection of altered books on my blog, so I am considering atarting a new category. This one looks particularly interesting as it becomes a sculpture while remaining a readable book. So delicate.
British artisans Bombus use découpage cover all sorts of items, which can be bought at notonthehightstreet.com. I have been meaning to cover a chair like this for ages, but of course will never get around to do this, it would be great to have a set, maybe one for every city I lived in!
